HARRISBURG – More than $650,000 in state transportation funds will benefit several local bridge projects within the 63rd District, Rep. Donna Oberlander (R-Clarion/Armstrong/Forest) announced today.
“I’m pleased to see that state transportation funds made possible by Act 89 of 2013 are being reinvested in our local communities,” Oberlander said. “These grants will help make necessary improvements to these bridges and help ensure the safety of those who travel on them.”
These grants were awarded at the discretion of PennDOT.
In Armstrong County, the following structures will benefit from $471,851 -- Blanco bridge on Church Road in Cowanshannock Township; and two structures on Millers Eddy bridge on Millers Eddy Road in Perry Township. Not in the 63rd District but used by local residents would be improvements to Dunmire bridge on Dunmire Road in Kiskiminetas Township.
Two townships in Clarion County will also receive Act 89 funds to repair bridges. They include $87,500 to replace Black Road bridge, a structurally deficient and weight-restricted bridge, restoring full access for residential, commercial and recreational traffic in Elk Township; and $95,302 to replace the large pipe system in Pennsy Road in Monroe Township with an aluminum box culvert to provide access for residential, commercial, agricultural and recreational traffic.
