HARRISBURG, Pa. — Governor Tom Wolf announced today that 70 municipalities -- including 10 in Central Pennsylvania -- will receive funding to improve traffic safety measures as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's "Green Light-Go" program.
More than $37.8 million in funding is earmarked for 70 municipalities statewide, Wolf said.
In Central PA, 10 municipalities in eight counties will receive nearly $2.8 million in funding, according to numbers released Wednesday by PennDOT.
“The safety improvements supported by the Green Light-Go program help municipalities relieve congestion and traffic flow, as well as keep Pennsylvanians moving safely and efficiently,” Wolf said in a press release. “I’m proud to help our communities improve mobility for Pennsylvanians.”
Green Light-Go grants are provided as reimbursements to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals.
Grant funding through the Green Light-Go program may be utilized for a range of operational improvements including, but not limited to, light-emitting diode (LED) technology installation, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
