Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. -

Two Mercer County communities are receiving $1,131,170 in state funding for street projects.

Governor Tom Wolf announced $40 million is coming from the transportation department for 37 PennDOT projects around the state, including those in Farell and Sharon.

The City of Farrell has been granted $467,400 for repaving Hamilton Avenue, the oldest remaining section of city street with cobblestone, between Stevenson Street and Kedron Street to enhance safety and accessibility.

Sharon will receive $663,770 for safety, accessibility, and mobility improvements to the following streets within the City: McDowell, Boyd, Richmond, Fairfield, Lillian, Dougherty, Thorton, Forker, Linden, Alcoma, and Pearl.

PennDOT evaluated 251 applications totaling more than $282 million and made selections based on safety benefits, regional economic conditions, the technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency, and operational sustainability.

The Multimodal Transportation Fund was created by Act 89, enacted in November 2013.
