Pennsylvania releases $105 million for transportation, pipeline projects

March 28, 2024

The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) approved $105.6 million for 244 projects across the state. The awards are distributed by the Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF) and the Pipeline Investment Program (PIPE) and will help aid transit safety and resource accessibility.

The CFA is an independent agency of Pennsylvania’s Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) and is responsible for administering economic stimulus packages.

“From streetscape improvements, installation of sidewalks and bike paths, to bridge repair – these projects will help provide a better quality of life for all Pennsylvanians,” DCED Secretary Rick Siger said in a statement.

Most of the money comes from the MTF, which was established to ensure safe and reliable transportation. It will provide over $104 million to 242 projects.

Some of the notable grants include:

  • $1.8 million to replace the Versailles Avenue Viaduct Bridge in Allegheny County.
  • $1.38 million to improve the Enola Low-Grade Trail in Lancaster County.
  • $625,000 to build a new connection road in Elk County.

The remaining funds, about $1 million, will be used for two projects through PIPE, which funds pipeline construction projects to increase natural gas access for residents.
