Harrisburg, October 2, 2018 − Exeter Township will receive $2.9 million in Multimodal Transportation Fund grant funding approved today by PennDOT, Sen. Judy Schwank (D-Berks) announced. The funds will strengthen the township’s efforts to increase safety along Perkiomen Avenue.
Exeter Township will receive $2,955,670 to design and construct pedestrian improvements on Perkiomen Avenue, which includes continuous sidewalk, pedestrian lighting, pedestrian buffer, trees, and defined entrances and exits for business driveways.
“Foot traffic has grown along Perkiomen Avenue as the township has grown, which is why we need enhanced safety features,” Schwank said. “These funds will improve the avenue for pedestrians and motorists alike and help them safely travel to and from businesses and other destinations along Exeter’s main business corridor.”
