Sen. Yaw Applauds $2.6 Million in Grants to Improve Traffic Safety

HARRISBURG – State Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23) today applauded the awarding of over $2.6 million in traffic safety grants through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT’s) “Green Light-Go” program.

“I was pleased to hear that several projects in Lycoming County received state funding through the Green Light-Go program,” Sen. Yaw said.  “I applaud these municipalities for developing successful applications, which will directly improve safety and traffic flow.”

Projects approved include:

  • Borough of Jersey Shore – $764,668 for updated signal equipment at Allegheny St. (SR 3028) & Broad St. and Main St. (Route 44) & Allegheny St. (SR 3028);
  • Muncy Borough – $360,780 for updated signal equipment at Main St. (SR 2014) & Penn St. (SR 2044);
  • City of Williamsport – $640,833 for updated signal equipment at Little League Blvd. & Hepburn St. and Market St. (SR 2023) & Little League Blvd.;

Statewide, 77 municipalities received over $35.5 million to support the traffic signal upgrades, increasing safety and mobility across Pennsylvania’s communities through the PennDOT’s “Green Light-Go” program.

Green Light-Go grants are provided as reimbursement to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. These projects will be funded through the appropriation for fiscal year 2023-24. Grant funding through the Green Light-Go program may 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.
