Two communities in the 47th Senate District will receive state grants to underwrite the costs of upgrading traffic signals under Pennsylvania’s new “Green Light-Go” program, according to Senator Elder Vogel.
Jackson Township, Butler County, will receive $15,000 to retime three traffic signals along Route 68 in Jackson Township (Evans City Road and Lindsay Road) and Evans City Borough (Route 68 and Jackson Street and Washington Street).
Harmony Township, Beaver County, will receive $4,500 to upgrade three traffic signals in the township to LEDs along Duss Avenue at the intersections of Dearborn Street, Keystone Road and 24th Street (SR989).
“These grants will assist Harmony and Jackson townships in making important improvements to selected traffic signals in their communities,” said Senator Vogel. “These improvements not only benefit the residents of those communities, but improve safety and traffic flow for everyone who drives those roadways.”
Jackson and Harmony townships were among 38 municipalities sharing $1.8 million in the current round of Green Light-Go funding. The program provides funding to municipalities 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.
