Dauphin County Commissioners award $3.9 million in low-interest loans to five local projects through new county infrastructure bank

HARRISBURG, PA (March 12, 2014) – Fixing a dangerous West Hanover Township intersection, significantly repairing three Harrisburg streets and helping Middletown’s downtown revitalization efforts are among the first five projects funded by the innovative Dauphin County Infrastructure Bank (DCIB).

The $3.9 million low-interest loans for road, streetscape and bridge improvements awarded today by Dauphin County Commissioners Jeff Haste, Mike Pries and George P. Hartwick, III represent a first-of-its kind partnership between a county and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to help municipalities address critical transportation-related projects. The five loans will be repaid over ten years at a 0.5 percent interest rate.
