HARRISBURG – Today Senator Mike Regan (R-31, Cumberland and York Counties) announced the awards of over $2 million in funds for bridge projects in Cumberland and York Counties through PennDOT’s Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside funds.
East Pennsboro Township in Cumberland County will receive $1 million in funding to construct a pedestrian bridge over East Penn Drive. This bridge will improve pedestrian safety by allowing safe passage for families and children at Adams Ricci Park rather than crossing an extremely busy road. This bridge will also improve multimodal connectivity for East Pennsboro Township and its residents.
York County will receive $1.4 million in funding to rehabilitate the historic Sheepford Road Bridge, which connects Cumberland and York Counties over the Yellow Breeches Creek. The funds will be used to rehabilitate the bridge for pedestrian and bicycle access and will preserve its historical character.
“I am proud to have supported these important bridge projects, and I’m pleased that these two communities will soon have increased mobility and connectivity for their residents. These bridges place a priority on safety and quality of life for our community precisely encompass the purpose and design for these funds,” Senator Regan said.
