HARRISBURG – Two roadway projects in Carbon County today were awarded more than $500,000 in Multimodal Transportation Funding through the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA), according to Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) and Sen. David Argall (R-Schuylkill/Carbon/Luzerne).

Lansford Borough was awarded $313,000 in funding to reconstruct the wall and roadway along Brimble Road. Bowmanstown Borough was awarded $187,000 in funding for the reconstruction of Lincoln Avenue, the borough’s wastewater treatment plant access road.

“It’s always important for our communities to apply for state grants. These dollars offset the cost for infrastructure projects in our local communities,” said Heffley. “I’m happy to see these grant dollars coming to Carbon County, and it will be a significant help to these projects.”

“I’m thankful this highly competitive state funding will improve the quality of life for people in Carbon County,” said Argall. “In Lansford, reconstructing Brimbles Wall will ensure that this road no longer presents a problem to the entire neighborhood. In Bowmanstown, reconstructing Lincoln Avenue is a high priority for this small community.”
Grant awards are based on such criteria as safety benefits, regional economic conditions, technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency and operational sustainability.

The Multimodal Transportation Fund provides grants to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to the residents of the Commonwealth.
