Phillips-Hill announces downtown improvement grants for eastern York County

YORK – Two York County communities will receive state funding for much-needed transportation upgrades, according to Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York).

Delta Borough will receive $426,885 and Wrightsville Borough will receive $1 million in grant funding from the Commonwealth Financing Authority.

The funding for Delta Borough will be used to rehabilitate the streetscape, including updating curbs, sidewalks, signaling and lighting along Main Street between Chapel Street and Broad Street.

In Wrightsville, the grant will be used for a major revitalization of Riverfront Park to improve the traffic flow around Front Street to make it safer for pedestrians and motorists. The funding will also be used to upgrade storm water management.

“These two grants are competitively awarded and I applaud the municipal leaders for their vision and effort to improve our two communities,” Phillips-Hill said. “Delta and Wrightsville continue to be amazing places to live, work and raise a family and with this additional state investment, they can continue to improve the quality of life for local residents.”

The grants were approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority under the Multimodal Transportation Fund Program.
