Corbett Signs Transportation Bill

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett was in Centre County yesterday to sign one of the state’s comprehensive transportation bill into law. The legislation will generate about $2.3 billion per year for road and bridge repairs across PA. According to a release, the money will come from increases in gas taxes and motorist fees. Corbett signed the bill at a ceremony along Route 322 in Potters Mills yesterday. Expanding 322 to four lanes from Boalsburg through Seven Mountains is one project planned with the additional funding.
