Powell applauds $450,000+ grant for improved community navigation

PITTSBURGH, March 28 – State Rep. Lindsay Powell, D-Allegheny, announced that a state grant has been awarded for safer and streamlined travel throughout Pittsburgh.

Hullett Development Triangle LP received a $452,424 Multimodal Transportation Fund grant for sidewalk improvements around the Hullett Triangle Building.

“Making these needed remedies to pathways used by residents and visitors alike on a daily basis is integral to connecting them with places of employment, health facilities, housing, shopping destinations, and much more,” Powell said. “This grant will help keep neighbors safe and translate into crucial dollars to help fuel the local economy.”

MTF grants are facilitated by the Commonwealth Financing Authority and help to provide a reliable system of transportation to residents statewide. Monies 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.
