PA Governor Corbett Announces State Investment in 24 Rail Projects

HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Twenty-four freight-rail projects across Pennsylvania will improve businesses' rail access, upgrade rail infrastructure and provide much-needed repairs with the aid of a nearly $18.6 million state investment.

"Pennsylvania has the highest number of short-rail lines in the country, which helps keep goods moving and our economy going," Governor Tom Corbett said. "When we invest in these rail projects, we help ensure a solid infrastructure is in place to support the jobs relying on these services."

Of the grants, $13.2 million will be distributed through the Capital Budget/Transportation Assistance Program, and $5.3 million will come from the state Rail Freight Assistance Program. The grants leverage $6.8 million in local investments.

Authorized by the General Assembly, the grants are administered by PennDOT's Bureau of Rail Freight, Ports and Waterways.

The grants were approved today by the State Transportation Commission, which evaluates and assesses the resources needed to maintain and expand the state's transportation system. The 15-member commission includes the Secretary of Transportation, Barry Schoch, 10 private citizens appointed by the governor, and the majority and minority chairs of the state Senate and House Transportation Committees.
