KITTANNING MULTIMODAL STREET PROJECT COMPLETED

Milling, paving and the installation of ADA ramps in a section of Kittanning Borough was completed in late September, improving access for motorists traveling to and from downtown Kittanning.

Shields Paving was awarded the contract by the Armstrong County Board of Commissioners to complete the Multimodal Transportation Fund project along Arch Street –  between McKean Street and North Grant Avenue –  for the bid amount of $89,411.

Borough Council President Kim Fox sees the completion of the project as a way to better market the community and to attract new business to the area.

“I think the project is very beneficial to the community, not only for the residents but also for the business district,” Fox said.

The project helps extend the recently completed Market Street streetscape project further throughout town.

“We have a beautiful little town and we hopefully will be able to showcase it better with all of the improvements being made,” Fox said.

This project was paid for through a combination of funding streams: A Multimodal Transportation Fund grant through the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA); Liquid Fuels money administered by Armstrong County; and a local share from Kittanning Borough.

Kittanning borough was among seven municipalities in Armstrong County that received state Multimodal funds through the assistance of Senator Don White (Armstrong/Indiana).
