Two Levittown municipalities were awarded more than 1 million dollars in funds for road and bridgework Penn DOT announced Tuesday.
The awards originating out of the liquid fuel fund is part of $487.5 million in payments being made to localities this week, through ACT 89 officials said.
Falls Township will receive approximately $945,000.00 and Tullytown Borough will receive about $58,000 for improvements.
“We have the fifth-largest state-maintained road system in the country, and there are even more locally owned roads and bridges,” Acting PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian said. “These investments help keep our communities safe and connected.
The formula for payments is based on municipality’s population and miles of locally-owned roads.
Act 89 of 2013 made more funding available for locally owned roadways. Before the law, municipalities received $320.8 million in liquid fuels payments.
To be eligible for liquid fuels, a roadway must be formally adopted as a public street.
