Ward, Topper Announce Multimodal Grant for Union Township

Harrisburg – Union Township received a $310,000 grant through the Pennsylvania Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF), Sen. Judy Ward (R-30) and Rep. Jesse Topper (R-78) announced today.

“Maintenance of our rural roads is very challenging for local governments with limited resources,” said Ward. “I am pleased that Union Township is receiving this much-needed assistance to improve the conditions of this roadway, making it safer for traveling motorists.”

The project scope includes pavement and drainage improvements to a 1.5-mile stretch of Hendershot Road in Union Township, Fulton County.

“This project will provide much-needed improvements for motorists and pedestrians in the area,” Topper said. “It is a wise investment in our infrastructure that will have a positive impact on residents.”

The MTF offers funding to improve safety for bicyclists and pedestrians, as well as investments in ports, rail freight and aviation projects. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation selected 56 plans totaling $47.8 million during this latest application round.
