HARRISBURG – Rep. Martin Causer (R-Cameron/McKean/Potter) today applauded a state grant to support sidewalk and pedestrian improvements in Bradford. 

The $704,840 grant will be used to install new sidewalks, curbs and pedestrian street lighting on North Bennett Street. A stamped asphalt crosswalk and street signage will be installed on the street near West Washington Street. The project will also include intersection improvements at North Bennett Street, Barbour Street and Campus Drive, and pedestrian access improvements for the playground and the McDowell Community Trail. These improvements include new ADA-compliant curb ramps, signage, colored asphalt crosswalks and a new sidewalk on the west side of Campus Drive.

“This is a valuable investment in our local infrastructure that will help make the City of Bradford safer and more efficient for pedestrians,” Causer said.

The funding was awarded through the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program Set-Aside, also known as the Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside. Selections were made based on established criteria such as safety benefits, cost effectiveness, readiness for implementation, impact on low-income or minority communities, statewide or regional significance, integration of land use and transportation decision making, collaboration with stakeholders, and leveraging of other projects or funding.
