Comitta announces $180,000 state grant to improve area traffic flow

HARRISBURG, May 11 – State Rep. Carolyn Comitta, D-Chester, today announced a $180,000 Pennsylvania Department of Transportation grant to improve area traffic signals.

The money will pay for West Chester Pike and North Chester Road signal upgrades in Westtown Township. Westtown Township will provide the remaining $45,000 match of the total project cost of $225,000.

“This is great news to Westtown Township,” Comitta said. “It’s important to increase the longevity of our infrastructure by making enhancements and improvements to our communities.”

The grant comes from PennDOT’s Green Light – Go Program, which provides state funds for the operation and maintenance of traffic signals along critical and designated corridors on state highways.

The Green Light – Go Program was created by Act 89, Pennsylvania’s transportation infrastructure investment plan passed in 2013.
