Over $1 Million for Railway Jobs and Infrastructure Improvements


Sen. Jim Brewster said today that $1,146,950 has been awarded for various railway track upgrades and expansion projects in the region.

“The railways that serve the industrial facilities of our region remain as critical components of highly integrated rail network,” Brewster said. “I am pleased that the state has made this significant investment that will help businesses in the area and create an environment that is conducive to job creation.”

U.S. Steel Corporation has been awarded $689,500 to complete rail track updates to accommodate their new hot rolling mill in Braddock.

Union Railroad was awarded $457,450 to construct new railway track and a new rail turnout that will also serve U.S. Steel’s new hot rolling mill.

PennDOT will be distributing the funds for the projects.

“I will continue to push for investments in railway and manufacturing operations,” Brewster said.
