Municipalities Receive State Grants to Upgrade Traffic Signals

Harrisburg – State Senator Tom Killion (R-Delaware) announced today that seven municipalities in the 9th Senatorial District will receive nearly $800,000 in state grants to improve area intersections and increase traffic safety.

The following communities will receive the grants, which are made available through PennDOT’s “Green Light-Go” program:  Aston Township, Brookhaven Borough, Chads Ford Township, Edgemont Township, Upper Chichester Township, East Goshen Township, and Kennett Township.

“These grants are incredibly helpful to our communities as they will help improve traffic flow and improve safety on roadways in our region,” Killion said.  “Having PennDOT help fund these projects also reduces the pressure traffic improvement projects have on local municipal budgets.”

The program helps underwrite the costs of upgrading traffic signals to help improve local traffic flow and safety on roadways throughout the Commonwealth. Grants can be used for installing light-emitting diode (LED) technology, performing regional operations such as retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
