State College, Pennsylvania – Almost $ 1.8 million in public funding is available for traffic and pedestrian safety in Patton Township and for the construction of a skate park in State College, according to the representative of the ‘State Scott Conklin (D-Center).
Funding of $ 1,541,992 will be used to expand an intersection along North Atherton and Woodycrest Street in the Township of Patton, with a new site access road installed across from Woodycrest Street.
The project will also include the replacement of traffic lights, the addition of sidewalks and the creation or lengthening of turning lanes.
The remaining $ 250,000 will help fund the construction of the Action Sports Park in State College Borough, a public concrete skate park for bicycles, scooters and skateboards. The park will also include a rain garden.

“I look forward to seeing these two projects move forward very soon,” said Conklin.
