BUCKS COUNTY, PA — Senator Steve Santarsiero (D-10) and Representative Tim Brennan (D-29) this week announced $279,200 in state funds for Doylestown Township through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Green Light-Go program.
The funding will be used for updated signal equipment at Easton Road (Route 611) and Edison Furlong Road in Doylestown Township.
“Doylestown Township has been working to continue safety improvements at this busy intersection and I am pleased to see these funds awarded for this project,” said Sen. Santarsiero. “Traffic signal upgrades like this ensure safety on our roadways while increasing accessibility to local businesses.”
Rep. Brennan added, “Many traffic accidents occur at these types of intersections. By updating our roads with the latest signal technology, we’re improving public safety not only for drivers, but for pedestrians and cyclists as well. We should also see better traffic flow with these improvements!”
Green Light-Go grants are provided as reimbursement to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. 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 (LED) technology installation, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
