HARRISBURG, March 26 – Today, state Rep. Elizabeth Fiedler, D-Phila., announced that state funding worth $300,000 was awarded to Wharton Piers JCE LLC to construct roads and sidewalks for new development at Wharton Piers.

Fiedler, who represents Pennsylvania’s 184th Legislative District in south Philadelphia, emphasized the importance of this project to the community.

“Safe roads and sidewalks promote connection between neighbors and access to new areas,” Fiedler said. “I’m glad to see state funding awarded to support transportation, including walking, in south Philly. I look forward to seeing the finished product.”
