Butler Township to Receive Traffic Signal Grant, Says Toohil
5/16/2016
HARRISBURG – Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) today announced that Butler Township is one of 109 municipalities statewide that will share $12 million to underwrite the costs of upgrading traffic signals under the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) “Green Light-Go” program.

Specifically, the township was awarded $80,040 to upgrade traffic signals at six intersections along Route 309 in Butler, Fairview and Wright townships.

“This funding will help to improve safety along Route 309,” said Toohil. “The new signal technology will allow traffic to flow more easily and eliminate travel delays for motorists.”

Made possible by Act 89, the state’s transportation funding plan, the program establishes partnership agreements between municipalities and PennDOT through which municipalities request up to 50-percent funding for traffic-signal projects.

During this fiscal year, grants can be used for installing light-emitting diode (LED) technology, performing regional operations such as retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
