– Upper Chichester Township will receive $675,000 to assist with the Chichester Avenue streetscape improvement project in a grant from PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund, Rep. Stephen Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) announced today.
The goals of the streetscape project in Upper Chichester Township, Delaware County, include sidewalk and street sign replacement, streetlight and bus stop improvements, I-95 right-of-way guide rail and security fencing replacement and other related initiatives.
“These funds will help strengthen the connection between our constituents and public transportation, as well as improve traffic through the corridor,” said Barrar. “I am happy to see this funding come to the 160th District and look forward to seeing the improvements that follow.”
The Multimodal Transportation Fund was started via Act 89
in November 2013. This was the first time that transit, aviation, railroad, pedestrian and bicycle modes were given dedicated funds, helping to strengthen and improve these modes for future initiatives and use.
