Tuesday, Governor Wolf will join Senator Casey and federal, state, and local officials to highlight his commitment to investing in infrastructure in order to support the growth of jobs and Pennsylvania’s economy.

In 2016, the governor announced his plan to invest more than $300 million in PhilaPort’s infrastructure, warehousing, and equipment. Since implementing the infrastructure improvement plan the port realized record breaking cargo volumes and nearly 20 percent container growth in 2017 and welcomed the arrival of the largest container vessel to ever call at the Port in February. Development is slated to continue through 2020 and is projected to support thousands of jobs and generate an increase of more than $100 million in state and local tax revenues annually.
