Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett announced today the state’s plan to invest in 24 freight rail projects that will aim to improve rail access and provide needed repairs.

Governor Corbett says that an investment in these projects will “help ensure a solid infrastructure is in place to support the jobs relying on these services.”

The state plans to invest nearly $18.6 million in the projects.  Of those funds, $13.2 million will be distributed through the Capital Budget/Transportation Assistance Program, and $5.3 million will come from the state Rail Freight Assistance Program.

The initiative will include projects in Bradford, Wyoming, and Luzerne counties.  Those projects will focus mainly on the repair of railroad bridges and the replacement of worn rail.
