BRIDGEVILLE – Rep. Jason Ortitay (R-Washington/Allegheny) today announced that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) has approved a $200,000 grant to improve the intersection of State Route 50 and Alpine Road in South Fayette Township.
The funding comes from the Multimodal Transportation Fund under the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which manages the state’s economic stimulus programs. The fund provides grants to encourage economic development and ensure a safe and reliable system of transportation is available in the Commonwealth.
“This intersection has been a concern for a number of years,” Ortitay said. “With these improvements, I hope the number of accidents and near misses will decrease dramatically. I’m pleased to assist the township with making this project a reality.”
The grant will be used to install traffic signals, approach signs, lane-designation signs and pavement markings at the intersection.
The 46th Legislative District includes Collier and South Fayette townships and Bridgeville, Heidelberg, McDonald and Oakdale boroughs in Allegheny County. It also encompasses Canton, Cecil, Mt. Pleasant, Robinson and Smith townships and Burgettstown, McDonald and Midway boroughs in Washington County.
