Harrisburg – November 12, 2019 – Sen. Larry Farnese (D – Philadelphia) announced today that three city projects have received a total of $850,000 in state funds.

“Making sure our city has the most efficient, safe, and up-to-date transportation networks is one of the keys to continue seeing our city thrive,” Farnese said.

Projects receiving funding include:

  • Center City District – Penn Center Plaza Transportation Gateway – $350,000
  • Delaware River Waterfront Corporation – Delaware River Trail – $150,000
  • Philadelphia City Treasurer Streets Department – Old City Market St. Enhancements – $350,000

The Multimodal Transportation grants are distributed by the state Department of Community and Economic Development. The funds are awarded to projects for the development, rehabilitation and enhancement of transportation resources to existing communities. Funds can go towards streetscapes, lighting, sidewalk enhancement, pedestrian safety, connectivity of transportation assets and transit-oriented development.

“I am very pleased that three transportation projects in my district were awarded state funding to help see the projects through to competition,” Farnese said. “I will continue to fight for state dollars for transportation in Philly.”
