Gov. Wolf awards funds to revitalize Pennsylvania communities
PA Gov. Tom Wolf announced April 22 the approval of $32.85 million to support 13 community, economic development and revitalization projects throughout Pennsylvania.
The award approvals in Lehigh County include the following project:
• St. Luke’s Hospital – Sacred Heart Sigal Center Parking Garage Accessibility, $1 million.
The construction project will connect the Sigal Center with the St. Luke’s parking garage next to it. Parking garage improvements include a new vehicular access ramp from the parking lot at the Sigal Center and a new pedestrian bridge from the second floor of the parking garage into the Sigal Center. The project includes utility relocation/coordination, a new pedestrian bridge, the relocation of the parking garage entrance/ramp and new lighting.
“Every one of these projects funded will make a real, meaningful difference in our communities and the lives of those who live there,” Wolf said. “It’s an honor to support Pennsylvania’s future success through these investments.”
The funding, through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, will support critical expansion projects, provide opportunities for job creation and employment training and community development and revitalization.
