Centre County’s Board of Commissioners having press conference
BELLEFONTE – Centre County’s Board of Commissioners are hosting a press conference at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 18 to accept a $1,365,000 state grant to fund bridge repairs. Included in the Local Bridge Bundle Project are the Fox Gap Road Bridge in Miles Township, Lower Coleville Road Bridge in Spring Township, and the Front Street Bridge in Curtin Township.
The grant award is through Pennsylvania’s Department of Transportation’s Multimodal Transportation Fund, which is earmarked to support economic development and assure reliable transportation to Commonwealth citizens.
All three bridges carry local traffic and either already have been restricted or are facing lane- or weight-restrictions because of structural deterioration.
Chairpersons from the municipalities as well as state and local representatives are expected to attend and offer commentary on the project. For more information, contact the Board of Commissioners office at (814) 355-6700.
