Several of these projects will also help governments address rides and roadways that are in need of repair, which reflects PennDOT’s commitment to improving locally owned infrastructure.

“Whether we’re making roadways more accessible to all modes of travel or creating new connections for businesses investing in our communities, transportation is integral to our quality of life,” PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian said. “These projects will bring long-lasting improvements across the state.”
