Transportation & Infrastructure
Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional district is home to one of the largest transportation and infrastructure networks in the Northeast United States. However, the federal government has failed to properly invest in keeping our infrastructure in good condition, and residents of our district are paying the price. From traditional infrastructure – like roads, bridges, and ports – to other critical infrastructure like schools, waterways, and broadband, we have lagged behind our peers in ensuring we are prepared for future generations.
Congresswoman Scanlon is committed to supporting bipartisan solutions to fund the bold transportation and infrastructure investments Pennsylvania so desperately needs.
