$327 MILLION FROM INFRASTRUCTURE BILL COULD HELP LANCASTER COUNTY'S 135 "POOR" BRIDGES
[REPUBLICANS LLOYD SMUCKER AND PAT TOOMEY VOTED "NO" ON THE BILL]
Some of Lancaster County's 1,026 bridges may be repaired or replaced sooner than expected as Pennsylvania learned Friday it will receive an additional $327 million this year for a federal bridge improvement plan.
The program comes from the Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act passed by Congress and enacted by President Joe Biden last year, often referred to as the infrastructure bill.
Over five years, the commonwealth will receive $1.6 billion in federal funding for the bridge program.
