Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has announced that Bristol Township in Bucks County is one of 42 highway, bridge, transit, ports and waterways, and bike and pedestrian projects that will be in line for $49 million in funding through the Multimodal Transportation Fund.
Bristol Township will receive $884,581 to install pedestrian safety and mobility facilities along U.S. Route 13 from the Croydon train station to Janet Avenue, including sidewalks, traffic calming measures, and storm water improvements.
On October 5, PennDOT will begin accepting applications for the next round of funding for grants under the Multimodal Transportation Fund.
PennDOT will evaluate the applications and make selections based on such criteria as safety benefits, regional economic conditions, the technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency, and operational sustainability.
Applications are due by November 15, 2018. PennDOT expects to announce grant recipients next year for the funding that becomes available in July 2019.
