Kelly Writes USDOT in Support of Butler County Infrastructure Grant Application

Jul 25, 2019

Washington, D.C. – On July 23, Representatives Mike Kelly (PA-16), Glenn Thompson (PA-15), and Conor Lamb (PA-17) wrote a letter to U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Secretary Elaine Chao in support of Butler County’s application for funding through the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) Discretionary Grant Program. The funds would be used by the county and PennDOT to complete the final four segments of the Gateway 228 project.

Completing the Gateway 228 project means more jobs and better economic connectivity for Butler, Beaver, and northern Allegheny Counties, said Kelly. It will also improve safety, traffic congestion, and environmental issues while making western Pennsylvania’s infrastructure more suitable for 21st century economy. I proud to support the county’s application and thank my colleagues Representatives Thompson and Lamb for joining me in this effort.
