Scott secures $857K for Norristown transportation and infrastructure projects

HARRISBURG, March 17 – State Rep. Greg Scott, D-Montgomery, announced that he helped secure $857,258 in state grants for projects in the 54th District from the Commonwealth Finance Authority.

“I am proud to have been able to help secure $857,258 for area transportation and infrastructure improvements because two things are key to Norristown’s growth—developing our economy and improving our quality of life,” Scott said. “These state grants will enable the districts to make critical investments in our freight transportation and municipal waste systems, so Norristown will strengthen its position as a critical rail hub for the transport of goods and protect the health of its residents.”

The grants went to the following projects:

  • $500,000 to renovate the Norristown Freight Station at Trail Junction Center (TJC). 
  • $387,258 to install sanitary sewer line replacements along Washington Street in Norristown Borough.

The grants were awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which oversees the state’s distribution of gaming revenues to support public projects.
