Dush, Benninghoff Confirm $1 Million in Funding for Centre County Infrastructure Projects

HARRISBURG – Sen. Cris Dush (R-25) and Rep. Kerry Benninghoff (R-66) today announced that more than $1 million in state funding has been awarded for three Centre County infrastructure improvement projects.

“My team and I are constantly working to secure highly competitive financial assistance for the benefit of our local townships, boroughs and municipalities,” said Dush. “It is always rewarding to see state funding return to the 25th Senate District to help offset or eliminate taxpayer costs for essential infrastructure enhancements.”

“I was more than happy to advocate on behalf of leadership in Gregg Township when they approached me personally about funding for the Bitner Hollow Road-Middle Road project,” said Benninghoff, who serves as Republican chairman of the House Transportation Committee. “These are the type of investments our constituents expect us to make in order to maintain local infrastructure, and I applaud the township supervisors for taking the initiative.”  

Specific projects and funding amounts are as follows:

  • $500,000 was awarded to College Township for the construction of a shared use pathway along East College Avenue from Puddinton Road to Hastings Road.
  • $400,000 was awarded to Gregg Township for Bitner Hollow Road and Middle Road Phase II improvements.
  • $118,688 was awarded to Snow Shoe Township for Kato Road Phase II improvements.

The grants were awarded through the Multimodal Transportation Fund administered by the Commonwealth Financing Authority. The fund was created to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to the residents of the commonwealth.
