Infrastructure

Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District is centrally located between some of the most travelled highways in our country and is poised to take economic advantage of our position by major infrastructure projects happening in our district. With projects like expansion of the I-99 corridor and the Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway Project, central and northeastern Pennsylvania will be in a position to be a hub for the transportation of persons and goods up and down the east coast and across the country. In Congress, I will continue to advocate for the transportation and infrastructure needs of Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District.
