LaHood, Philadelphia officials break ground on transit center project


On Monday, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood joined Philadelphia officials to launch a $50 million project designed to expand and renovate a major transit center.

The renovation of Dilworth Plaza will improve transit into Philadelphia’s Center City by upgrading connections and accessibility around the City Hall transit hub, LaHood said in his daily blog.

The project, which will be funded in part by a $15 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant, will improve access for commuters using Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s regional commuter-rail and subway systems, as well as Port Authority Transit Corp. and Amtrak lines, and area trolleys and buses, LaHood said.
