Towns all across Pennsylvania will get makeovers to their business districts in the coming year. They're among 106 new projects approved today through the state's Multimodal Transportation Fund (MTF), totaling $54.7 million. Not only do they include many "Streetscape" grants to fund things like new sidewalks, lighting, and other improvements to the "Main Street" areas of dozens of communities, the projects will fund improvements to everything from airports and parking garages, to rickety bridges, dangerous intersections and bike trails.

"These projects will improve residents' quality of life and boost Pennsylvania businesses and communities." Gov. Tom Wolf

The projects approved today are located in 40 counties. The award money may be part of a larger, multi-year funding package. Here are some of the "streetscape" grants in the region:
