The Commonwealth Financing Authority today (March 26) awarded $ 2,139,339 in state Multimodal Transportation Funding grants for three projects in Beaver County, according to Senator Elder Vogel.
The Borough of Monaca was awarded $1 million for streetscape improvements along Pennsylvania Avenue from 13th Street to 16th Street. Planned improvements include signal upgrades, sidewalk and crosswalk renovations, as well as lighting, bicycle racks and storm water management installation.
Midland Borough was awarded $650,000 to restore sidewalks and resurface roads on Midland Heights Circle, Midland Heights Midcrest, Railroad Lane, as well as Ohio, Virginia and Woodlane avenues.
Geneva College in Beaver Falls was awarded $489,339 for its South Campus Corridor project. The project includes new sidewalks, curbing, lighting, fencing and landscaping.
“This is good news for Beaver County and all local residents,” Senator Vogel said. “Grants that Pennsylvania provides for the enhancement of its transportation infrastructure are long-term investments in communities and enhance the region’s attractiveness for economic development. They are essentially investments that improve the quality of life for everyone.”
