Margaret J. Krauss | WESA
Margaret J. Krauss is WESA's development and transportation reporter. She previously worked for Keystone Crossroads, a statewide reporting initiative that covers problems facing Pennsylvania's cities and possible solutions. Before joining Keystone Crossroads, Margaret produced a 48-part radio series about Pittsburgh's lesser-known history, biking 2,000 miles around the region to do so.
Pennsylvania’s public transportation agencies will receive more than $617 million this year. WESA’s Margaret J. Krauss reports the increased funding for transit was part of President Joe Biden’s Infrastructure and Jobs Act.
Replacement of Pittsburgh’s collapsed Fern Hollow Bridge has been fast-tracked. But WESA’s Margaret J. Krauss reports some groups want to take time to make sure it’s worthy of the city of bridges.
The state of Pennsylvania will pay nearly $24 million to replace the bridge that collapsed in Pittsburgh on Friday. WESA’s Margaret J. Krauss reports the federal infrastructure law helped create some wiggle room in PennDOT’s budget.
