$1 Million in State Funds Secured for Yardley’s Final Sidewalk Improvements



State Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10) and state Representative Perry Warren (D-31) announced last week an award of just over $1 Million for Yardley Borough to continue sidewalk upgrades as part of a multi-phase improvement project on North Main Street.

Utility relocations, repaving a portion of North Main Street and constructing sidewalks through Dolington Road are part of the final phase, said Santarsiero.

“Yardley Borough is a growing and thriving community in the 10th Senate District, with bustling restaurants and businesses along Main Street,” said Senator Santarsiero. “Each phase of Yardley Borough’s North Main Street project has improved pedestrian safety, boosting access to the many local businesses. I have proudly supported this project since its inception and look forward to seeing this project finally completed.”



“The Yardley North Main Street sidewalk project is an economic development project that also enhances recreational opportunities and provides a community connection for residents of Yardley and Lower Makefield,” said Rep. Warren. “Thank you to present and past members of Yardley Borough Council for supporting and seeing this project through each of its phases.”

“Representative Warren and State Senator Santarsiero have given the Yardley Borough Community the gift of a safe walking route along N. Main Street,” said Yardley Borough President Caroline Thompson. “This, N. Main Street Phase III sidewalk completion project, is the final piece to connect our residents on the northern side of town to our bustling business district for shopping and dining and to the canal towpath for recreation and exercise. Over the past three months, Yardley Borough and Lower Makefield have begun cooperative discussion around sidewalks and connectivity and based on these conversations, we are confident that Phase III will not only serve Yardley Borough but also Lower Makefield Township and beyond as the fragmented sections of sidewalks reach full connectivity. It’s a beautiful thing with State government and neighboring municipalities all come together like this!”

Yardley borough Council Vice President and Public Works Chair Uri Feiner added, “Almost two decades ago, residents on North Main Street came to council to request a sidewalk. This grant will allow us to finally complete this essential connection for our residents. This is a huge step in our commitment to making every part of our one-square-mile walkable borough truly—and safely—walkable.”

The funding is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF), Santarsiero said.
