Bartolotta Announces $760,000 in Funding to Replace Bridge in Poor Condition

WASHINGTON – Sen. Camera Bartolotta (R-46) announced today that the Greene County Commissioners will receive more than $760,000 to replace a poor condition bridge in Morris Township where Walker Road intersects Patterson Creek. The funding is awarded through the Multimodal Transportation Fund.

“The Fern Hollow bridge collapse in Pittsburgh earlier this year was a grave reminder of how important it is for us to keep up with Pennsylvania’s infrastructure needs. Receiving this money to replace the bridge before it is too late is welcome news,” Bartolotta said. “We certainly do not want to repeat the disaster in Pittsburgh.”

“Infrastructure continues to be an important part of keeping our communities and the residents who live there, safe,” Bartolotta said. “I welcome today’s announcement for additional investments into Greene County. The 46th Senatorial District, with its rolling hills and bountiful streams, create unique challenges and opportunities, and I’m committed to meeting them.”

The Multimodal Transportation Fund provides grants to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to the residents of the commonwealth. Funds may be used for the development, rehabilitation and enhancement of transportation assets to existing communities, streetscape, lighting, sidewalk enhancement, pedestrian safety, connectivity of transportation assets and transit-oriented development.
