More Than $1.8 Million Slated for Road Repairs, Says Hess

Rep. Dick Hess (R-Bedford/Fulton/Huntingdon) today announced that more than $1.8 million has been slated for road repairs in Bedford and Huntingdon counties.


“This much-needed funding will improve driving conditions in the area in and around Broad Top City,” Hess said.  “Although delays and detours will occur, I am confident area motorists will be pleased with the final result.”


The Broad Top City maintenance contract was awarded to New Enterprise Stone and Lime Company Inc. of Bedford County in the amount of $1,862,107.  It includes resurfacing of Route 913 in Huntingdon County and Route 915 in Bedford County.  In total, more than 11 miles of road surface will be paved, which extends from Cooks Road in Carbon and Wood townships in Huntingdon County to Heckman Road and Pennsylvania Route 26 in Broad Top Township and Hopewell Borough in Bedford County.  The project is scheduled for completion by the end of August.


“I am pleased that funding is being directed to roads in the 78th District that are in need of repair,” Hess said.  “I urge motorists to use caution when approaching and traveling this construction zone.”
