Cerrato brings home $715K in traffic, pedestrian safety grants

AMBLER, March 26 – State Rep. Melissa Cerrato today announced that two communities in her Montgomery County district received $715,740 in grants from the Commonwealth Finance Authority’s Multimodal Transportation Fund.

Ambler Lakeview Development was awarded $504,754 for sidewalk and roadway work along North Maple Avenue. Montgomery Township received $210,986 for the installation of a rectangular rapid flashing beacon, which is a pedestrian safety measure that alerts drivers of people walking across the roadway.

"By investing in infrastructure improvements such as sidewalks, roadways, and pedestrian safety measures, we are not just enhancing the physical landscape of our communities, but also fostering safer and more accessible environments for all,” Cerrato said. “Grants like these exemplify my commitment to promoting pedestrian safety and enhancing the overall quality of life for residents and visitors alike."

The MTF may be used for the development, rehabilitation and enhancement of transportation assets in the state. The CFA was established in 2004 as an independent agency of the Department of Community and Economic Development to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages.
