Funding Secured for Port of Erie Development Projects

Governor Tom Wolf has announced $2.7 million in new state investments to the Erie Western PA Port Authority designed to spur economic development through the Port of Erie.

These investments reflect my administration’s commitment to spurring the ongoing revitalization efforts in Erie and the growth of its economy,” Governor Wolf said. “We want to work closely with the Erie region to support its vision for future growth.”

The funding will be utilized for multiple projects, which continue to support the maritime economy in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Erie’s port plays an important role in the state’s commerce and goods movement,” Department of Transportation Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “This is another example of how transportation investment supports jobs and stimulates local economies.”

Included in the funding is $1,600,000 for the reconstruction of the northern seawall on East Dobbins Landing. The most recent investments were made possible through PennDOT’s Multimodal Transportation Fund.
