HARRISBURG – The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) approved funding today for several local transportation and community improvement projects, according to Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman (R-Bellefonte) and Representative John Hershey (R-Mifflin/Juniata/Franklin).

The projects announced by both lawmakers include:

Juniata County
$250,000 for roadway improvements in Port Royal Borough along Milford Street between 8th Street and State Route 333.
$266,678 for paving projects in Thompsontown Borough, including the resurfacing and/or reconstruction of School, Shearer, Evergreen, McGeary, Pin Oak and Delaware Streets.

Mifflin County
$130,725 for an expansion project at Mifflin County Academy of Science and Technology, including reconfiguring and widening an access road at the Lewistown campus.

“These projects meet numerous needs throughout the region and will improve the quality of life for local residents,” Corman said. “I look forward to seeing the positive impact these grants will have in our communities.”

“I’m thankful that Senator Corman and I could advocate for these important projects in the area. Tackling the infrastructure work and expansion of The Academy will be endeavors that serve this and future generations well,” Hershey said.

The projects were funded through CFA’s Multimodal Transportation Fund Program, which finances priority projects in any mode of transportation throughout the state.
