DOYLESTOWN, PA—Drivers who regularly travel Route 611 through Warrington Township can get some relief from traffic issues thanks to two state grants worth more than $700,000 the township is receiving.
Warrington will receive a state grant for $486,500 to complete preliminary engineering to improve the intersection of Easton and Bristol Roads in Warrington Township.
The township is also receiving $255,000 for intersection and roadway improvements that will occur when the Wawa on Easton Road south of Street Road is redeveloped. Wawa plans to demolish the store and turn it into a nearly 6,000-square-foot “super” store with gas pumps.
The grants come from the Multimodal Transportation Fund program, which works to provide Pennsylvania residents with a safe and reliable transportation system. The program provides grants of $100,000 to $3 million.
“I am pleased to help secure this funding for important projects and upgrades for Bucks County,” said State Sen. Frank Farry in a statement. “The approved state grant funding will greatly benefit our communities and improve our infrastructure reliability for years to come.”
The Multimodal Transportation Fund program is part of the Commonwealth Financing Authority, which was established in 2004 to administer the commonwealth’s economic stimulus packages. The authority distributes gaming revenue collected by the state.
