West Chester, PA (Marzo 16, 2023) – Three transportation projects in the Borough of Oxford, East Fallowfield Township, and Easttown Township will receive $500,000 in total state funding, state Senator Carolyn Comitta announced today.

“Safe roadways and accessible pedestrian crossings and sidewalks contribute to the quality of life in our towns and neighborhoods,” Comitta said. “These investments will help calm traffic, promote safety on our roadways, and ensure that our communities are walkable for residents and families.”

The projects, approved today by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, are funded through the Multimodal Transportation Fund. They are as follows:

  • $150,000 for the Borough of Oxford for roadway and sidewalk improvements along Mt. Vernon Street and three other streets in the borough.
  • $150,000 for East Fallowfield Township to install traffic calming and pedestrian safety improvements in Newlinville Village.
  • $200,000 for Easttown Township to construct sidewalks and crosswalks near Devon Station.

The Multimodal Transportation Fund provides grants to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to Pennsylvania residents. Eligible projects include the development, rehabilitation and enhancement of transportation assets to existing communities, streetscape, lighting, sidewalk enhancement, pedestrian safety, connectivity of transportation assets and transit-oriented development.

The Commonwealth Finance Authority was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. It holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
