Harrisburg, PA (STL.News) Governor Tom Wolf today announced that Pennsylvania has been awarded $17,084,430 in federal Appalachian Development Highway System funding as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
“The Appalachian region are connected not only by our landscape but also through our vast system of highways, allowing travelers and businesses to reach important destinations and support economic development, tourism and more,” Gov. Wolf said. “I’m pleased that President Joe Biden continues to share my commitment to strengthening our infrastructure and grateful that we will receive support for our portion of this multi-state highway system.”
