DVRPC Awards $7.6 million to 11 Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) Projects

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) has awarded $7.6 million to eleven local projects in Southeastern Pennsylvania through the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). The federal program funds community-based “non-traditional” projects designed to strengthen the cultural, aesthetic, and environmental aspects of the nation’s intermodal transportation system. Selected projects include trail, sidewalk, transit stop, and on-road bicycle improvements.

“These eleven projects will enable communities to build multi-use trails, safe routes to school and pedestrian pathways, and bike lanes and bikeway projects, providing transportation options for a wide variety of users throughout our region,” said Barry Seymour, DVRPC Executive Director. “This is one more step in our ongoing efforts to implement The Circuit, the region’s ambitious plan for a 750-mile network of connected trails.”

The projects and awarded funding are listed below. (Complete list here)
