7/13/2018
HARRISBURG – Rep. Rosemary M. Brown (R-Monroe/Pike) is pleased that Green-Light-Go applications for projects in Smithfield, Middle Smithfield and Stroud townships in the 189th District were recently approved to receive funding for traffic signal upgrades.

“This funding is so important to help improve the safety of intersections across the district and utilize the most innovative technology for optimal traffic flow,” Brown said. “My office helped to ensure this funding was obtained, and I am very pleased that these funds will make a significant difference close to home.”

Smithfield Township will receive $552,682 to install an adaptive traffic signal system at 10 intersections along U.S. Route 209 in Smithfield and Middle Smithfield townships. Stroud Township will receive $502,439 to add an intersection to the existing system and add adaptive traffic signal systems for four intersections along State Route 611.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s “Green Light-Go” program grants are provided as reimbursement to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. Funding may be utilized for light-emitting diode (LED) technology instillation, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans, monitoring traffic signals, upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies and more.

Gov. Tom Wolf announced Thursday that 70 municipalities across the Commonwealth will receive more than $31 million as part of this initiative.
