You are here

Today U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin (both D-Md.) announced new federal funding for the City of Frostburg. The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) will provide $450,000 to make infrastructure improvements to Frostburg Gateway at the terminus of Braddock Road. It will create approximately 64 new jobs, retain 40 existing jobs, and ultimately improve connections between Interstate 68, Frostburg State University, and the city center.

“Investing in our nation’s infrastructure is a top priority, and I’m proud to announce that the federal government is doing just that here in Frostburg,” said Senator Van Hollen. “This funding will create new jobs, keep even more people employed, and improve commerce and travel in the community. These are the kinds of smart investments we need to be making across Maryland.”

“This is a smart federal investment in Frostburg’s infrastructure,” said Senator Cardin. “It will improve some of the area’s most heavily used roads, allowing local economies and commerce to continue growing and serving Frostburg residents. The fact that this investment will also create good-paying jobs in the area is an added bonus. I’ll keep fighting to ensure every corner of Maryland receives the resources they need to improve their infrastructure and grow their local job markets.”

ARC is an economic development agency of the federal government and 13 state governments focusing on 420 counties across the Appalachian region. Its mission is to innovate, partner, and invest to build community capacity and strengthen economic growth in Appalachia and help the region achieve socioeconomic parity with the nation.
