HARRISBURG – Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) today announced the awarding of $842,185 in state funding to assist with a street improvement project in Bowmanstown Borough, Carbon County.
Specifically, the grant, which was made available through the Multimodal Transportation Fund Program, will be used to reconstruct Craig Street to allow for safer travel conditions for residents. The work includes a new base layer and blacktop, removal of old catch basins, and new stormwater drains and curbing.
“Infrastructure costs are rising for small municipalities across the Commonwealth. So, it’s important that programs like this are available to help ensure that projects are completed,” said Heffley. “I’m happy to see that the Bowmanstown project was approved for funding and look forward to its completion.”
The Multimodal Transportation Fund provides grants to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to state residents.
The funding was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, an independent agency that holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
