HARRISBURG – A major Centre County transportation improvement project was awarded a $1.5 million grant from the Commonwealth Financing Authority today, according to Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-Bellefonte).
The funding will allow for the expansion of the intersection along North Atherton and Woodycrest Street and add a new site access road opposite of Woodycrest Street. The project will make the intersection a four-way intersection. In addition, the project will include constructing a 6-lane access road into the upcoming mixed-use Patton Crossing site and other improvements to help reduce congestion and improve traffic flow in the area.
“This project will play a strong role in protecting the safety of motorists in the area and ensuring our infrastructure can meet the growing needs of local communities,” Corman said. “Keeping our local infrastructure strong is a high priority for me, so I am thankful that this grant will support these critical improvements.”
The project was funded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which is an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development that administers many of Pennsylvania’s economic development and community improvement programs.
