A PennDOT grant will help reduce travel hazards in a Huntingdon County borough. The grant totaling more than $197,000 ($197,610) will address runoff issues impacting the intersection of Rio Grande and Hudson Streets in Three Springs. The project will reduce the risk of flooding at the community pool, while also improving pedestrian access. Grade changes in the area will also improve access for emergency vehicles. The funding was distributed through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund.
