Brewster: Long Run Road - Walnut Street Intersection Improvements Funded

A state grant of $316,100 has been approved to improve the Long Run Road – Walnut Street intersection in the City of McKeesport, state Sen. Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny/ Westmoreland) said today. 

“In order to continue the redevelopment of the region, it is critical that our road network is improved,” Brewster said.  “The intersection at Long Run Road and Walnut Street is an important gateway to not only the City of McKeesport but the entire Mon Valley.”

The grant was approved through the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s (CFA) Multimodal Transportation Fund.  CFA projects are designed to bolster economic revitalization through strategic state investment. 

Brewster said that this grant is being used to support the development of Walnut Crossing development which will add an additional access point to the intersection. 

“The key to bringing more growth, development and jobs back to the Mon Valley is by making the area attractive for new employers and more productive for those that are already up and running,” Brewster said.  “CFA transportation grants help open access to development-ready land parcels and improves the marketability of sites.”

Brewster, who formerly served as the mayor of McKeesport, said that in addition to spurring potential economic development the improvement of the intersection will speed traffic flow through a heavily traveled corridor.

The project includes the installation of a traffic light and turning lane.
