Gov. Wolf Announces More Than $48 Million For Infrastructure Improvements Across Pennsylvania
April 21, 2021
Governor Tom Wolf today announced the approval of 116 new projects through the Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF), improving Pennsylvania’s transportation infrastructure and ensuring safer, more reliable transportation accommodation across the commonwealth. The projects total more than $48 million in funding.
“Investing in these critical improvements now will make the lives of our 12.8 million residents—and visitors—easier for years to come,” said Gov. Wolf. “Pennsylvania is large, diverse, and well traversed, and improving our roadways, bridges, and other infrastructure will ensure smoother, safer, and more accessible transportation options for all who travel within our commonwealth.”
The 116 MTF projects approved are located in 45 counties: Adams, Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Berks, Blair, Bradford, Bucks, Butler, Cambria, Carbon, Centre, Chester, Clarion, Crawford, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Fayette, Franklin, Fulton, Indiana, Lackawanna, Lancaster, Lehigh, Luzerne, Lycoming, McKean, Mercer, Mifflin, Monroe, Montgomery, Montour, Northampton, Northumberland, Philadelphia, Pike, Somerset, Susquehanna, Tioga, Union, Venango, Washington, Westmoreland, and York.
A complete list of Multimodal Transportation Fund projects approved at today’s CFA meeting can be found here highlighted in yellow.
The MTF was established by Act 89 of 2013 to ensure the availability of safe and reliable transportation access in communities throughout the commonwealth. The program funds several types of improvement projects, including roads, walking and bike trails, rail, traffic safety, public transportation, and air transport. With nearly $500 billion in goods and services moving through Pennsylvania every year, modern and dependable infrastructure is vital for promoting economic development across the commonwealth while also improving conditions for residents and visitors.
Note that the CFA’s MTF program is separate from the multimodal program administered by PennDOT. Information about PennDOT’s program can be found on the PennDOT website.
