I know that's a different funding source so to speak, but talk about faulty infrastructure that will shut down the area.....And, Navy Yard transportation anyone?
Most of the bill is still obligated to roads and bridges but the total for mass transit has increased to about $500 million a year, of which SEPTA will receive about 75%. Now that there is money SEPTA will be able to author an updated capital plan. Improvements that septa plans to make will be in their plans, not the state's.
