Miller announces $220,000 state traffic grant for Mt. Lebanon

MT. LEBANON, July 12 – In the fourth round of funding from the state’s Green Light-Go Program, state Rep. Dan Miller is announcing a $220,000 grant to Mt. Lebanon Township.

Miller, D-Mt. Lebanon, said the state funding will help remove obstacles that aggravate vehicle congestion and impede traffic flow, as it will enable Mt. Lebanon to replace the traffic signal at the intersection of Bower Hill Road and North Wren Drive/Firewood Drive to accommodate realignment to a four-way intersection.   

“This state investment will help make it easier, safer and quicker for drivers to navigate these heavily traveled roads,” Miller said. “I thank PennDOT for seeing the value in funding this very important project in the 42nd Legislative District.”

The Green Light-Go Program was established under Act 89 of 2013. The grants may be used for a range of operational improvements, including upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies, removal of unneeded traffic signals, replacement of signals with LED lights and retiming signals to improve traffic flow and safety.

Miller said 70 grants worth a total of $31 million were awarded statewide.
