Manchin Joins Charleston Mayor Goodwin For $1.75 Million Infrastructure Investment Announcement
Charleston, WV – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) joined Charleston Mayor Amy Goodwin to announce a $1.75 million infrastructure investment from the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) for the Charleston Capital Connector Project.
“Investing in infrastructure projects across West Virginia will have a monumental impact on our communities and local economies. For months, I have been advocating for the Charleston Capital Connector Project, which will upgrade and improve the Kanawha Boulevard corridor and Greenbrier Street gateway. In October, I called Department of Transportation Secretary Buttigieg and urged him to make this project a reality, and I’m pleased DOT heeded my request to improve our capital city. As we work to put the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill into action, I will continue to advocate for infrastructure projects across the Mountain State,” Senator Manchin said.
The Charleston Capital Connector project will upgrade and improve the Kanawha Boulevard corridor and Greenbrier Street gateway to make the city safer and more accessible for bikers, walkers, joggers and riders.
