Gov. Tom Corbett signed the transportation funding bill today, according to a news release.
It will invest an additional $2.3 billion to $2.4 billion in roads, bridges and mass transportation around the state, the news release says.
Here in York County, the additional funding will pay for the widening of Interstate 83 from four to six lanes in the metro York area.
The area that is slated to be widened to six lanes is between the Mount Rose Avenue and Emigsville interchanges.
Bob Jensenius, vice president of the York County Economic Alliance, said Monday that if there is any doubt about the positive impact of the I-83 widening, one needs only to “drive to Harrisburg to see how the traffic flow improves when I-83 because six lanes around Reeser’s Summit.”
