– A London Grove Township bridge, closed for several years, will receive state funding towards its reconstruction and reopening. State Rep. John Lawrence (R-London Grove) announced the grant award earlier this week.
“The London Grove Township Board of Supervisors is excited to receive this grant,” said London Grove Township Manager Ken Battin. “The Woodview Road bridge is an important part of the community. Once all of the Federal and State requirements are met, we are excited to move forward with construction.”
“I’ve heard from many residents who are eager to see the Woodview Road bridge reopened,” said Lawrence. “I’m grateful to work with the London Grove supervisors to deliver this state grant funding.”
The bridge has been closed for several years after a fallen tree caused significant damage. The project currently awaits federal review which must be completed prior to construction.
The grant award was funded through the Pennsylvania Local Share Account program administered by the Commonwealth Financing Authority.
