Carroll: $1.9 million for road reconstruction in Pittston

PITTSTON, July 16 – Rep Mike Carroll, D-Luzerne/Lackawanna, has announced that the city of Pittston has been awarded a $1.9 million PennDOT Multimodal grant to realign North Main Street from its intersection with Mill and New streets.

Carroll said considering the financial challenges faced by communities such as Pittston due to the COVID-19 impact, these significant grant funds will ensure this important infrastructure project is completed. 

“Each year, I passionately advocate for the communities I represent to guarantee our region benefits from this grant program and each year these efforts have proved wildly successful,” Carroll said.  “Pittston’s Main Street is a source of particular community pride and this project on North Main extends the significant improvements we’ve made along Main Street through the city.”        

“Mike Carroll’s unyielding support for Pittston and the surrounding communities could never be duplicated and this critical grant highlights Mike’s seniority as chairman of the House Transportation Committee and the ability to deliver for our residents,” Michael Lombardo, Pittston mayor said.

The total project cost is roughly $2.5 million with matching funding provided by the city of Pittston.
