11 - 27 - 2013 Transportation bill all but guarantees CSV Thruway
[WNEP] - A thruway project in central Pennsylvania more than 40 years in the making is all but a sure thing. Business leaders and lawmakers gave themselves a pat on the back Tuesday, taking credit for getting the necessary money for the massive project. People in Snyder, Union and Northumberland counties have been hearing about the Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway for nearly half-a-century. After the governor signed that transportation bill into law Monday, local officials said it is full steam ahead on the project to bypass a heavily traveled roadway in central PA. Big trucks and all sorts of other vehicles are always using routes 11 and 15 in Snyder County. Itâs a main route for shipping and travel and for ages, PennDOT and local leaders have been trying to find a way to pay for a bypass.
