(Malvern) -- Governor Corbett is calling a new all-electronic interchange on the  Turnpike a step in the state's "journey to prosperity."

Corbett attended the ribbon-cutting today for the exit and entrance ramps that connect the turnpike with Route 29 in Malvern. It's east of the Downingtown interchange, and west of Valley Forge.

Officials say the improvement should cut congestion, and Corbett is touting its ability to attract businesses to the region.

Corbett says as the state makes it "easier to reach our places of commerce, those offices and the jobs they create will flourish."

The Republican governor says he wants to work with lawmakers on a long-term funding plan for transportation infrastructure.
