Yesterday, Governor Wolf announced that 109 municipalities across Pennsylvania would receive $12 million to fund traffic signal upgrades. Made possible by Act 89, the state’s transportation funding plan, the Green Light-Go program establishes partnership agreements between municipalities and PennDOT through which municipalities request up to 50-percent funding for traffic-signal projects.

“State and local partnerships like this are critical to improving traffic flow and safety across the state, and this program helps us meet that goal,” said Governor Wolf. “Through this investment, communities across the state will benefit from upgraded signals and intersections.”
