– Rep. Parke Wentling (R-Mercer) announced $350,000 from PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund will be used to construct a trail connecting Lorenwood Drive to the nearby Hermitage Athletics Complex.
“Rather than getting in the car, this trail will enable those living on Lorenwood Drive to walk, run or ride their bikes over to the Athletic Complex,” Wentling said. “As chair of the House Cycling and Trails Caucus, this is the exact type of improvement I’d love to see across the Commonwealth.”
The Multimodal Transportation Fund is a program designed to ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to all Pennsylvanians. The funding is used to improve transportation infrastructure that enhances communities, pedestrian safety and transit revitalization.
On Sept. 25, PennDOT will begin accepting applications for the next round of funding for grants under the Multimodal Transportation Fund. Applications are due by Nov. 10. PennDOT expects to announce grant recipients next year for funding that will be available in July 2024.
