Pitcairn, White Oak to Receive State Grant Funds

Scale and GavelState grant funding including $525,000 for road slide repairs in Pitcairn and $200,000 for a streetscape project in White Oak was approved today, state Sen. Jim Brewster said.

“The ability to successfully access state resources to address key projects in the area is very important,” Brewster said.  “Many communities need the state dollars to undertake valuable projects and enhance the quality of life in their communities.

“Local municipalities try and stretch dollars to meet needs, yet critical projects cannot be considered unless the state steps up and help fill funding gaps.”

The money for Pitcairn and White Oak was approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority. 

The projects include:

  • Pitcairn Borough: Center Avenue slide remediation project involves cutting the hillside, removing material, stabilizing the hill and relocating portions of Center Avenue between Fifth and Highland Avenues ($525,000);
  • White Oak: Streetscape and pedestrian safety improvements along Lincoln Way including new light poles, electrical work and street signs ($200,000).

Brewster said that he would continue to be a strong advocate for funding and work to bring even more state funding to the district through other state programs.
