Project Grant:

The City of Harrisburg Multi-Modal Collaborative Project is a joint undertaking of multiple partners, specifically designed to improve vehicular, transit, pedestrian and bicycle movements in the Central Business District and throughout the City. The project is a multi-year endeavor led by the City of Harrisburg and will include roadway resurfacing, repairs to deteriorated streets and sidewalks, the construction of new bike lanes, and thoughtful traffic flow improvements, like turning lanes and signalization.

As construction is underway on various aspects of this project, the City will coordinate with Capital Region Water to facilitate improvements and repairs to the City’s aging water infrastructure—including stormwater, sanitary and water supply systems.

AMOUNT LEVARAGED: $17 million. The total project cost for the immediate phases is estimated to be over $22 million. In addition to grant funding from Impact Harrisburg, funding has been committed by PennDOT, by CRW’s Green Infrastructure Fund and from the City of Harrisburg.
