PennDOT Taking Bids for Multimodal Grants

Applications are being taken for grant funding from the Multimodal Transportation Fund of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

In a news release the agency said it will fund projects that coordinate local land use with transportation assets to enhance existing communities; improve streetscapes, lighting, sidewalk facilities and pedestrian safety; improve connectivity or utilization of existing transportation assets; or advance transit-oriented development.

Winning bids will be chosen based on safety benefits, regional economic conditions, technical and financial feasibility, job creation, energy efficiency and operational sustainability.

Eligible applicants include municipalities, councils of governments, business and nonprofit organizations, economic development organizations, public transportation agencies, public airports, airport authorities, and port and rail entities.

The deadline to submit an application is Nov. 14 with winners being announced next year.

In fiscal year 2002 PennDOT awarded grants to 56 projects totaling $47.8 million in funding throughout 28 counties.
