Yardley and Morrisville are among the recipients of highway, bridge, rail, and bike and pedestrian projects in 21 counties that were selected for funding through the Pennsylvania Multimodal Transportation Fund last month.
The projects to be funded include:
- Yardley Borough – $312,147 to construct approximately 1,200 linear feet of concrete sidewalk along the northern side of North Main Street (SR 2071), as well as related stormwater and pedestrian facility improvements.
- ELU Deluca Yardley LLC – $3,000,000 to increase capacity of the Route 332 bypass and the I-295 Interchange in Lower Makefield Township. A multi-use trail will also be constructed along Stony Hill Road, completing a missing link in the local trail system.
- Morrisville Borough – $150,000 to improve the pedestrian and traffic signals at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Trenton Avenue so that it is safer for the community.
“Investing in our communities continues to be critical to moving the economy forward in 2021,” PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian said. “Making roadways more accessible for all modes of travel assures that we are making continued business connections for the future and keeps transportation an integral part of daily living.”
PennDOT evaluated the applications and made selections based on criteria such as safety benefits, regional economic conditions, the technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency, and operational sustainability.
The next round of Multimodal grant applications will open in September 2021. For more information about the program, visit www.penndot.gov and click on “Multimodal Program” under the “Projects & Programs” button.
