Robinson Secures More than $2.3 Million for District Infrastructure Upgrades

HARRISBURG – Sen. Devlin Robinson (R-37) announced today that more than $2.3 million in grants is being awarded for local transportation improvement projects in the district.

“These initiatives are truly remarkable. They will enhance connectivity by revamping streets, renewing public stairways, improving sidewalks and more,” said Robinson. “Each of these projects will significantly enhance pedestrian experiences within our district, providing convenience and safety for residents and visitors alike, as they enjoy the diverse amenities and support local businesses across different areas of our community.”

The grants, awarded through Commonwealth Finance Authority’s Multimodal Transportation Fund are to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to the residents of the commonwealth. These projects include:

  • $300,800 to replace the West End Stairway in Moon Township.
  • $249,900 for Crescent Township to replace sidewalks on McGovern Boulevard.
  • $127,400 to install sidewalks on six streets in Leet Township.
  • $456,516 to the Borough of Coraopolis to reconstruct two blocks of Montour Street.
  • $248,780 for Bridgeville Borough to construct a new public stairway and bicycle runnel at Gregg Avenue.
  • $163,463 to Thornburg Borough for sidewalk installation along Hamilton Road.
  • $500,000 for transportation improvements by Friends of Pittsburgh Professional Soccer at the Sports and Athletic Complex at Montour Junction in Coraopolis.
  • $262,500 for Upper St. Clair Township for the construction of a sidewalk along Fort Couch Road.

Multimodal Transportation Fund awards may be used for the development, rehabilitation and enhancement of transportation assets, streetscape, lighting, sidewalk enhancement, pedestrian safety, connectivity of transportation assets and transit-oriented development.

The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to administer the commonwealth’s economic stimulus packages.

Robinson recently hosted a grant workshop for municipal leaders to learn about funding and resources available to communities through the CFA.
