Cook Announces More Than $1 Million Grant for Greene County Bridge Replacement
HARRISBURG – The Greene County Board of Commissioners has been awarded $1.04 million in state funding for a much-needed bridge replacement, Rep. Bud Cook (R-Greene/Washington) announced today.

“Southwestern Pennsylvania has so much to offer with our assets, attractions and activities, but we can’t expect people to come if we don’t have safe and reliable infrastructure,” Cook said. “I am pleased to see this investment being made in replacing a bridge that sorely needs it.”

The bridge slated for replacement is located on Kiger Road in Perry Township and is considered structurally deficient. It has a sufficiency rating of 45.3 and is eligible by the Federal Highway Administration for replacement.

The funding was awarded through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund, which aims to provide financial assistance to municipalities, councils of governments, businesses, economic development organizations, public transportation agencies, and ports and rail freight entities to improve transportation infrastructure that enhances communities, pedestrian safety and transit revitalization.
