HARRISBURG, Pa. (WENY) -- Pennsylvania is investing nearly $79.3 million in transportation infrastructure to ensure safer and more reliable transportation for residents and businesses.

Bradford County previously received nearly $300,000 in funding for the Diahoga trail in Sayre, and the Alternative Transportation Safety Project along the same trail in Athens.

In 42 additional counties, the funding will be used on improvement projects for roads, walking and bike trails, rail, traffic safety, public transportation, and air transport.

"Supporting Pennsylvania's infrastructure supports our communities and our economy," Governor Wolf said. "By making infrastructure investments in projects across the commonwealth, we will make it easier for commuters to get to and from work safely, and for businesses to transport their goods efficiently. These are investments with far-reaching impacts."

With nearly $500 billion in goods and services moving through the commonwealth every year, Wolf says modern and dependable infrastructure is vital.
