WILCOX – Due to the increase in funds expected for 2015 from the state's dirt and gravel roads program, the Jones Township Board of Supervisors is looking into new projects to take on with the funding.
The state has increased its dirt and gravel road funding sevenfold statewide from $5 million to $35 million which is expected to be received by municipalities in 2015. In the past, Pennsylvania counties have received $4 million in funding while the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources [DCNR] has received $1 million.
