Cabell, Baker Announce State Grant for Street Improvement Project in Lehman Township
HARRISBURG – Rep. Mike Cabell (R-Luzerne) and Sen. Lisa Baker (R-20) today announced the awarding of nearly $355,000 in state funding for a street improvement project in Lehman Township. The lawmakers played a key role in securing the grant.

The funding will go toward the reconstruction of Market Street in the township and improve access to a school and other public facilities.

“This project will tackle a critical infrastructure need as Market Street is the primary entryway to Lehman-Jackson Elementary School, the Victory Baptist Bible Church and the Huntsville Golf Course. The road is in dire need of repair and the township cannot take on the financial responsibility alone,” said Cabell. “The project is essential in creating a safer access route for both school buses and passenger vehicles while also contributing to the economic viability of the area.”

“Securing this funding is another win for the efforts to upgrade roads throughout the county. The improvements funded here have positive economic, environmental and safety impacts. Local communities and motorists will be happy to see the project move from planning to construction,” Baker added.

The grant was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) through the Multimodal Transportation Fund, which provides funding to encourage economic development and ensure that a safe and reliable system of transportation is available to Pennsylvania residents.

The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth and holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
