HARRISBURG – Rep. David Maloney (R-Berks) today announced that his request to help mitigate the tractor-trailer traffic through downtown Boyertown has been approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).
At Maloney’s request several years ago, Boyertown Borough this week has been approved for a $606,797 grant from the state for updated signal equipment at the intersections of E. Philadelphia Avenue (Route 73) and Chestnut Street, and E. Philadelphia Avenue (Route 73) and Washington Street.
“I requested this project several years ago with PennDOT District 5 executive Mike Rebert,” Maloney said. “Many constituents had asked me for a solution to the congestion caused by truck traffic and a growing population. Since my office is in downtown Boyertown, I understood and asked PennDOT for help. It took a while, but they came through. These are very competitive grants and not a lot of representatives have secured them.”
