Governor Tom Wolf announced today that 70 municipalities will receive over $37.8 million to support traffic signal upgrades, increasing safety and mobility across Pennsylvania’s communities through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT’s) “Green Light-Go” program.
Just over $1.5 million is targeted for the Elm Street corridor in Conshohocken. The breakdown is as follows:
- $319,315 for the modernization of the traffic signal at West Elm Street and Oak Street
- $373,150 for the modernization of the traffic signal at East Elm Street and Harry Street
- $391,071 for the modernization of the traffic signal at West Elm Street and Maple Street
- $424,930 for the modernization of the traffic signal at West Elm Street and Colwell Lane
“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,” said Governor Wolf. “I’m proud to help our communities improve mobility for Pennsylvanians.”
Green Light-Go grants are provided as reimbursement to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. The funding can 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.
