McClinton, Williams applaud $600,000 grant for Yeadon

Funding will be used to improve intersection at Church and Baily

HARRISBURG, March 27 – State House Speaker Joanna McClinton and state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams, both D- Phila./Delaware, are applauding a state grant recently awarded to Yeadon Borough to make safety improvements to a local intersection.

The funding, awarded through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Multimodal Transportation Fund, will be used to make improvements at the intersection of Church Lane and Baily Road. 

“To thrive, our local communities need to be accessible, including having safe sidewalks, good lighting and access to transit,” McClinton said. “These improvements in Yeadon will be good for our neighbors, visitors and local businesses.”

"We are committed to enhancing the safety of our communities by significantly improving local intersections," said Williams. "This investment will protect Yeadon residents and foster a more secure and harmonious environment for all."

The Multimodal Transportation Fund from the Commonwealth Financing Authority provides grants to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to the residents of the commonwealth. Funds may be used for the development, rehabilitation, and enhancement of transportation assets to existing communities, streetscape, lighting, sidewalk enhancement, pedestrian safety, connectivity of transportation assets and transit-oriented development.
