 GOV. CASEY ANNOUNCES CONSTRUCTION WILL BEGIN NEXT SUMMER ON


$4.7 MILLION CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS IN LACKAWANNA COUNTY
 SCRANTON, Pa., Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Gov. Robert P. Casey announced today that construction will begin next year on four projects totaling $4.7 million at Scranton State School for the Deaf and Clarks Summit State Hospital, part of a $120 million statewide effort to improve state facilities and boost the economy.
 "These projects are designed to improve our schools and hospital facilities and stimulate our economy by creating thousands of jobs and setting the stage for future economic growth," Casey said while touring the school during Scranton Capital for a Day.
 The Lackawanna County projects, which will create approximately 295 construction jobs, are among 35 projects statewide that Casey announced in his State of the Commonwealth address earlier this year.
 "The promise to accelerate and expand the state's construction program is moving ahead," Casey said. "The four projects are nearing the end of their design and construction should begin next summer."
 The $2 million project at the School for the Deaf involves renovations in all nine buildings, most of which are more than 100 years old. The work includes repairing roofs, waterproofing foundations, installing carpets, modifying restrooms and water fountains to handicap specifications and upgrading the heating and air conditioning system.
 At Clarks Summit State Hospital, $2.7 million will be spent on three projects to install air conditioning in the Hilltop West Geriatrics Building, build new offices and treatment rooms in Newtown Hall and install a sewage holding tank.
 Construction of the four Lackawanna County projects is expected to take one year.
