List of Transportation Projects

Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-Jefferson) announced that more than $125 million in funding has been approved for a wide range of transportation projects in the 25th Senatorial district.

“These projects will create jobs for district residents and improve our transportation infrastructure to make our roads and bridges safer,” Scarnati said. “Our state is facing a transportation funding crisis as we look for ways to repair and replace our aging infrastructure. This investment will help ensure that our highways, roads and bridges are sustainable for years to come.”

In addition to individual projects listed below, Scarnati said funding will be used for resurfacing and repair projects and bridge preservation programs throughout the 25th Senatorial district.

A recent study found that Pennsylvania has nearly 6,000 structurally deficient bridges and approximately 9,000 miles of roadway in poor condition. “We need to replace and repair these structures so we don’t have an incident like the Minnesota bridge collapse,” Scarnati said. “We also must make long overdue improvements to our roads and highways if we want to protect public safety and encourage economic development.”

Two of the new projects are in Clearfield County. The intersection of Hospital Avenue and Dixon Avenue will be realigned to create a four-way stop for traffic entering DuBois Regional Medical Center. Funding will also be allocated for bridge preservation activities in several municipalities across Clearfield County.

Funding will also be used for streetscape improvements on a five-block area of Pennsylvania Avenue in Warren.

In Elk County, the Elk Creek Bridge, located on State Route 120 in Ridgway Township will be rehabilitated.
