– A $353,315 grant announced today by Rep. Andrew Lewis (R-Dauphin) and Sen. John DiSanto (R-Dauphin/Perry) will be used to make improvements to Allentown Boulevard (U.S. 22) at its intersection with Clover Lane in West Hanover Township to support the eventual development of a 7-Eleven.
The project will add a lane for vehicles to decelerate when approaching the intersection. Two driveway entrances at the Clover Lane traffic signal will be improved to accommodate the expansion of commercial development.
“This section of West Hanover Township is a targeted area for growth. I’m grateful the Commonwealth Financing Authority OK’d the project, which includes a contribution of private funding,” Lewis said. “These improvements will ultimately benefit motorists’ safety on that section of Allentown Boulevard.”
“I’m pleased to join Rep. Lewis in offering my support for state funding that helps build community and transportation assets, which improve the quality of life in our area,” DiSanto said.
The grant was awarded by the Commonwealth Financing Authority under its Multimodal Transportation Fund Program. The program is funded with money assessed by the Commonwealth through the state’s Impact Fee, which is paid by the state’s unconventional natural gas producers.
