Sunbury Receives Transportation Grant

(HARRISBURG) – The City of Sunbury has been awarded a grant in the amount of $800,000, according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27) and Representative Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-108). 

Grant funds will help to update the streetscape on Market Street.  This work includes new sidewalks, new LED lighting and a new guide railing.  The concrete wall will be restored and the north side retaining wall will be replaced.  Finally, the intersection at 10th and Chestnut Streets will be altered to allow for added safety for pedestrians.

“I am pleased that Governor Tom Wolf and PennDOT have chosen to award these funds to Sunbury,” said Senator Gordner.  “I also want to congratulate city officials for putting together an important project and a successful application.”

“This project will enhance the safety for pedestrians and businesses in Sunbury,” said Representative Culver.  “I look forward to seeing and experiencing Market Street once the project has reached completion.”

The funds come from the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, which are passed through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
