On November 14, the Commonwealth Financing Authority announced the latest awardees in its Multi-Modal Transportation Program. Our Research Director John Boyle plucked out those that are relevant to our region and highlighted them in a spreadsheet for your perusal, a snippet of which can be seen here:
This is new money for local bike/ped projects that will start moving forward in 2018. Traditionally, a significant percentage of these grants have been awarded to non-bike/ped projects, such as freight, airport improvements, parking facilities, and many other projects that have been largely auto-oriented.
FYI this fund is distinct from the Multi-Modal Fund that is administered PennDOT.
