—Rep. Donna Scheuren (R-Montgomery) today announced that Lower Salford Township has been awarded a grant to update traffic signal equipment along Route 63 on Main Street and Sumneytown Pike.
The grant of $358,499 is the full amount requested by Scheuren.
“I want to thank the administration for weighing my arguments and agreeing that this money will be effectively used to improve safety, traffic flow, commuters’ time, and the time vehicles sit idling on the road,” Scheuren said.
Lower Salford Township applied for the grant to help it complete improvements to the Adaptive Signal System software and hardware components along the east/west corridor of Main Street and Sumneytown Pike. Once work is complete traffic will flow more efficiently.
The funds are from PennDOT’s Green Light-Go program.
Green Light-Go funds may be used for a range of operational improvements including light-emitting diode (LED) technology installation, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
The funds for Lower Salford are part of more than $35 million awarded to 77 municipalities to support traffic signal upgrades, increasing safety and mobility.
