Williams applauds traffic safety grant addressing risky Caln Twp. intersection

CALN TOWNSHIP, Dec. 17 – State Rep. Dan Williams, D-Chester, highlighted the importance of a $225,205 state grant to address a problematic traffic area in Caln Township, Chester County, today.

The investment, funded through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Automated Red Light Enforcement program, is targeting troublesome traffic near the one-lane bridge over Beaver Creek on Lloyd Avenue. A traffic signal will be installed to better control the flow of traffic.

“This traffic signal has long been anticipated by many in our district,” Williams said. “Currently, with vehicles attempting to alternate one at a time, it can take a long time to navigate this area. I’m grateful to Governor Tom Wolf and the folks at PennDOT for agreeing with many of us here that this is a problem that deserves a solution.”

Wolf announced $13.1 million today in funding to improve safety at signalized intersections in 34 municipalities statewide, targeting difficult traffic zones in order to enhance mobility and reduce congestion. Those municipalities, including Caln Township, had previously submitted applications for consideration for funding.
