LaHood was at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport on Friday for a brief closed-door meeting with Lackawanna County transit chief Robert Fiume and representatives from Sen. Bob Casey's office.
Nearly $3 million in federal funding that had been allocated center by Congress between 1998 and 2000 to build the intermodal center hub has been recently recommitted to other projects because it wasn't spent.
That happened in July, just as the project was moving forward after years of limited progress and frustrating delays.
After hearing details of the proposed project, LaHood told The Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/V6YTMt) that state, local and federal officials will work to find funding to get the project finished.
