Webster announces traffic signal grant for Lower Providence Township

HARRISBURG, Oct. 4 – State Rep. Joe Webster announced that Lower Providence Township was awarded a state grant for traffic signal improvements along Egypt Road.

Lower Providence was awarded a “Green Light-Go” grant of $342,025 for use of automated traffic signal performance measures with fiber optic communication, controller upgrades and detection upgrades at three intersections along Egypt Road.

“We’re all on the go, so safety on our highly traveled roads is critically important,” said Webster, D-Montgomery. “I’m pleased that Lower Providence Township was awarded this grant for improvements to keep traffic flowing smoothly in our community.”

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