New Bridges and Smoother Roads Lined Up Across Pa.

The first projects that'll be funded by a major transportation bill will touch nearly every corner of Pennsylvania.

The bill, which Gov. Tom Corbett will sign next week, is expected to marshal another $2.3 billion a year for transportation in Pennsylvania from higher gas taxes and motorist fees.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation says it'll immediately start replacing a Route 422 bridge over the Schuylkill River and a bridge carrying Route 23 over Route 422 in Montgomery County.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) says it'll overhaul four bridges on its Delaware County commuter line and upgrade its Philadelphia City Hall station.

It'll repair the Birmingham Bridge in Pittsburgh, widen a section of Route 22 in Allentown, rehab part of Route 219 near Johnstown and expand Interstate 81 in suburban Harrisburg.

Over the next five years, the gas tax will increase by an additional .25-cents a gallon across the Commonwealth.
