– In an effort to improve safety and accessibility, Rep. Marci Mustello (R-Butler) announced today that the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) awarded approximately $1.4 million for the construction of two intersections in Butler Township.
The funding will be used to construct two intersections adjacent to the Pullman Center Business Park. In the current configuration, Whitestown Road, Hansen Avenue and Armco Drive form a confusing intersection that has caused frequent vehicle accidents. The project will realign Whitestown Road to form a perpendicular intersection with Hansen Avenue. In addition, Armco Drive will be realigned to reduce the road angle at its intersection with Hansen Avenue. Armco Drive will also be shifted to create a new intersection with nearby Hollywood Drive. The project will add new traffic signals at these intersections and pedestrian safety improvements that include sidewalks and time-signaled crosswalks.
“These grants represent valuable investments in ensuring safety, accessibility and business growth in our area,” said Mustello. “The improvements will reduce the number of accidents, and prepare the area for further development of the Pullman Center Business Park.”
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.
“I was happy to work cooperatively with Sen. Scott Hutchinson (R-21) on this project,” said Mustello. “Our long-standing relationship makes it easy to support projects like this that benefit all of our shared constituents.”
