Fleming applauds award of nearly $385K in state grants to improve traffic signals

HARRISBURG, Aug. 14 – State Rep. Justin Fleming, D-Dauphin, today announced $384,928 in the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Green Light-Go program funds have been awarded to update signal equipment at Colonial Road (SR 3017), Colonial Park Mall Driveway/Colonial Road (SR 3017) and Crums Mill Road/Devonshire Road in the 105th District.

“Thanks to these grants from PennDOT’s Green Light-Go program, our communities will be able to update signal equipment at key intersections to reduce congestion and increase traffic flow, ensuring that motorists travel quickly, efficiently and safely through our streets,” Fleming said. “These traffic signal updates will also help ensure pedestrians are safer as well. This funding is an example of how government is working to improve services and the quality of life for our residents.”

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 technology installation, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.

For more information, residents may contact Fleming’s district office at 717-230-1172.
