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.”
