Federal money for SEPTA

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will increase funding for the Bristol Station Accessibility Improvement project by $7.5 million

U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick announced that SEPTA will receive about $500 million in additional capital funding over five years from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

The money is intended for better roads, bridges, rail, water and other needed infrastructure projects.

In Bucks County, the infrastructure law will allow SEPTA to increase funding for the Bristol Station Accessibility Improvement project by $7.5 million. The $30 million project will make Bristol Station fully ADA accessible. IIJA funding will allow SEPTA to dedicate an additional $15 million for Regional Rail bridge repairs and $4 million more for grade crossing safety improvements, which will benefit residents of the 1st Congressional District. SEPTA’s board was expected to vote on the amended capital budget at its meeting on March 24.

“I am glad to see that the bipartisan infrastructure law that I crafted, supported and helped to pass is already making a difference in my district,” Fitzpatrick said. “This money will help SEPTA better serve people across Bucks and Montgomery counties, and I look forward to seeing even more projects that would only happen as a result of the IIJA.”

Fitzpatrick looks forward to having SEPTA’s capital budget vetted by the communities it serves during the upcoming public comment period in April and May.
