Kulik: Coraopolis gets $165,000 grant for traffic signal replacement

(Feb 26, 2018)

HARRISBURG, Feb. 26 – State Rep. Anita Kulik, D-Allegheny, today announced the award of a $165,000 state grant to Coraopolis for its 4 th Avenue and Mulberry Street Traffic Signal Replacement Project. Kulik said the source of funding – PennDOT’s 2017 Automated Red Light Enforcement Program – comes from red light violations in Philadelphia. An eight-member committee then distributes the money statewide for relatively low-cost projects that improve safety, enhance mobility and reduce congestion. “I’m pleased to report that a project in the 45 th Legislative District has qualified for some of this funding,” Kulik said. “But it’s even more satisfying to know that because of this money, an important intersection in Coraopolis will be upgraded. “This is a very competitive grant program, so local officials should be proud of their success in this safety-enhancing endeavor.” Kulik said the grants can be applied for and used for improvements to traffic signals, roadways at intersections with traffic signals, or school zones – and such things as installing guiderails or making roadside safety enhancements.
