The grant is a U.S. Department of Transportation Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) transportation grant. It covers the second phase of the $63 million Route 228 corridor project.
This portion of the project stretches from Route 3020 Haine School Road to the Beaver County line. Gateway 228 also includes the realignment of Balls Bend in Middlesex Township.
The improvements to the stretch of road will allow for better traffic capacity, safety and accessibility.
“Strategically, it’s a great project,” Gordon said.
Gordon said about $17 million has been raised locally for Gateway 228, an amount he referred to as “unheard of” at a local level.Gr
