More than $400,000 in State Grants to Fund Sewer Project

Approximately 85 percent of an upcoming sewer project will be funded through state grants, as announced September 18 by State Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware. In all, more than $1.2 million in grants were been awarded for various projects throughout the 191st Legislative District, which covers portions of Delaware and Philadelphia counties.

The Yeadon portion of the grants consists of $424,641 for the replacement of sewer mains along West Providence Road and Yeadon Avenue. The total cost of the project is $499,578, according to a news release by Rep. McClinton.

The grants – approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority – also include $250,000 for a dock expansion at Bartram’s Garden public park, $200,000 to help renovate the McCreesh Recreation Center, and $358,011 for sewer line rehabilitation in Darby.

“Aging infrastructure can lead to major consequences, so it’s crucial to address these issues as quickly as possible,” McClinton said. “I am proud to support these efforts in any way that I can.”
