Route 219 Groundbreaking

Moving the Route 219 project forward wasn’t easy, but doing so will vastly improve infrastructure in the region and contribute to growing Southwestern Pennsylvania’s economy. I worked with key senators to secure language in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) transportation bill that allowed toll credits to fund Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS) projects and allowed the federal cost share on ADHS projects to increase from 80% to 100%. This is a step forward for Somerset County and will help create economic growth in the region, and I’m proud to help make this project a reality today.
