HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

The City of Harrisburg has been awarded a $900,000 loan to repair damage caused by a sinkhole last year.

State Senator Rob Teplitz (D-Dauphin/York) said the low-interest loan, administered by the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST), would go toward repairs in the 2100 block of N. 4th Street.

Water and sewer lines were damaged by a sinkhole in the area last December.

City Council Public Works Chair Sandra Reid told abc27 the city is waiting for UGI to finish gas line repairs before crews can re-pave the road.

Teplitz additionally announced that the Harrisburg Authority received a $26 million low-interest loan through PENNVEST to upgrade the city's wastewater treatment facility.

He said the improvements will bring the plant's ammonia and nutrient reduction requirements into compliance with the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection.

The $53 million project will also receive $26.7 million in outside financing and a $973,000 H20 PA grant, he said.
