Emrick Secures Final Grant Money for Route 191-Friedenstahl Avenue Traffic Light
9/9/2014
NAZARETH – State Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Northampton) is pleased to announce that the final amount of funding needed for the installation of a traffic light at the Route 191-Friedenstahl Avenue intersection in Upper Nazareth Township has been secured. The $351,000 grant was obtained through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Multimodal Transportation Fund.

“We need to thank former Upper Nazareth Township Supervisor Jim Augustine, who played a significant role in obtaining this grant, as well as the $500,000 we successfully obtained in March through the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act’s Local Share Account,” Emrick said. “Today’s announcement, coupled with the grant from March and money already set aside locally, brings the total to more than $1.2 million, enough to make this project a reality.”

The Multimodal Transportation Fund provides grants to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to the residents of the Commonwealth. Grants may be used for the development, rehabilitation and enhancement of transportation assets to existing communities.

Questions about this event or any legislative issue should be directed to Emrick’s Mt. Bethel office at (570) 897-0401 or his Nazareth office at (610) 746-5090.
