Uniontown Receives Transportation Grant to Improve Historic Center

The Redevelopment Authority of the City of Uniontown has been awarded a $999,350 grant to make improvements to the town’s historic center, according to Senator Pat Stefano (R-32), who said the funds will help to promote tourism and economic development.

Stefano said the funds, are provided by the federal government and administered by the state through its Transportation Alternatives Program.

The grant will be used to add crosswalks and create ADA-accessible ramps to improve safety and enhance the Historic District for both residents and visitors in the downtown

“I’m pleased our area was selected to receive this transportation funding, which will improve our Historic District and make it more attractive, safe and accessible,” Stefano said.  “Bringing more people to this growing downtown area will help to create jobs and economic opportunities for Uniontown.”

PennDOT evaluated the applications and made selections based on such criteria as safety benefits, reasonableness of cost, readiness for implementation, statewide or regional significance, integration of land use and transportation decision making, collaboration with stakeholders, and leverage of other projects or funding.
