Rep. Nelson applauds grants awarded to Cheltenham and Jenkintown

HARRISBURG, Aug. 16 – Improved intersections are coming to Cheltenham Township and Jenkintown Borough, state Rep. Napoleon Nelson announced.

Under Pennsylvania’s Green Light-Go grants, Cheltenham was awarded $305,040 for updated signal equipment at Ashbourne Road and New Second Street. Meanwhile, Jenkintown was awarded $51,160 for updated signal equipment at Walnut Street and Runnymede Avenue.

“Making our streets safer for motorists, passengers and pedestrians is one of the most important jobs of both state and local government,” Nelson said. “These grants help the state and local municipalities partner to help create improved safety at these two intersections.”

Administered by PennDOT, the Green Light–Go Program is a competitive state grant program designed to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals located in Pennsylvania.

The Green Light-Go Program is a reimbursement grant program and applicants are required to provide a minimum 20% match.
