Yardley Borough will benefit from construction of a major sidewalk with the help of a state grant, state Rep. Steve Santarsiero, D-Bucks, announced last month. The North Main Street sidewalk project will be made possible with a $453,935 Pennsylvania Department of Transportation Multimodal Transportation Fund grant to the borough.
“Working together with residents of Yardley Borough, borough officials and state Senator Chuck McIlhinney, we are committed to investments that protect the small-town character of Yardley,” Steve said. “This particular project is part of ongoing efforts of traffic calming, road improvements and truck traffic decrease along Main Street.”
The installation of a concrete sidewalk on the east side of North Main Street will extend from Afton Street through to the borough line, near Dolington Avenue.
