Meanwhile, site preparation work is expected to begin in the next few weeks for CamTran’s new headquarters and garage in the Woodvale section of the city.
“We are very excited about going to that neighborhood,” Executive Director Rose Lucey-Noll told Griffith following last week’s meeting of the Cambria County Transit Authority.
CamTran plans to build a $20 million, state-of-the-art facility in the former FreightCar America lot along Maple Avenue.
It will be a tremendous shot in the arm for the Woodvale neighborhood and for the area in general as it creates construction jobs.
At the same time, we urge the transit authority to continue efforts to find buyers for what will become vacant CamTran garages in the Moxham section.
Buildings left unoccupied usually fall into disrepair rather quickly.
