FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 

Simmons, Browne Announce State Grants for Road Improvement Projects in Coopersburg and Upper Saucon Township

 

HARRISBURG – Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh/Montgomery/Northampton) and Sen. Pat Browne (R-Lehigh) today announced the approval of Multimodal Transportation Fund grants to the borough of Coopersburg and Upper Saucon Township for safety improvements for motorists and pedestrians.

 

Coopersburg will receive $300,000 for proposed crosswalk improvements on Main Street at the intersections of West State Street, Carpenter Alley, East Station Avenue and Thomas Street, along with new curbs and streetscape amenities and ADA-accessible sidewalks. They will also be doing improvements to pedestrian lighting on Main Street from Thomas Street to the bridge over a tributary of Saucon Creek north of West State Street and from East Station Avenue to Horse Alley. The total cost of the project is $988,309.

 

“I am pleased to work with Representative Simmons to secure funds to help with these critical improvement projects in Coopersburg and Upper Saucon Township,” Browne said. “It is a fundamental responsibility of the Commonwealth and our municipalities to provide safe and useable infrastructure for the health, safety and high quality-of-life standards for our residents and all Pennsylvanians.”

 

The $201,338 grant for Upper Saucon Township will be used by the township to make improvements to the intersection and roadway along PA Route 2045 between the northbound and southbound lanes of PA Route 309. The project includes the removal of the existing concrete median, widening of PA Route 2045 to provide an additional through/left turn lane, shoulders, installing new traffic signal heads, emergency vehicle detectors, pavement markings, pedestrian signals and pushbuttons for crosswalks. The total cost of the project is $398,559.

 

“I fully support the township’s efforts to address its safety concerns at this very busy and important intersection,” said Simmons. “This is money well-spent on a project that will continue the road improvements that have taken place in that area in recent years.”  

 

The funding was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which was established as an independent agency that holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
