McClinton announces more than $200,000 in public safety funding for Yeadon

YEADON, Jan. 10 – House Democratic Majority Leader Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, today announced $287,000 in public safety funding has been awarded to Yeadon Borough.

McClinton said the funding will be used for traffic signal and pedestrian accommodation improvements at the intersection of MacDade Boulevard and Church Lane.

“This is a heavily trafficked area,” McClinton said. “This funding will improve the flow of traffic and protect our neighbors walking to and from their destinations. I look forward to the completion of this project.”

The project is one of 36 statewide that were approved for funding through PennDOT’s Automated Red-Light Enforcement program, which is funded by fines from red light violations at 36 intersections in Philadelphia. Municipalities across Pennsylvania submitted 151 applications for funding totaling $46 million in requests.

More information about the program is available on the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s website.
