East Greenville Traffic Signal Project Wins Grant

EAST GREENVILLE PA – The borough was awarded a $261,301 grant Wednesday (July 7, 2021) from Pennsylvania’s “Green Light-Go” program as reimbursement for work to modernize the traffic signal at Fourth and Main streets, Gov. Tom Wolf announced.

The money is part of $15.6 million distributed to a total of 50 municipalities for projects that upgrade traffic signals, and increase mobility and travel efficiency. “Safety improvements supported by the Green Light-Go program not only help municipalities relieve congestion and traffic flow, they help Pennsylvanians move safely and efficiently,” Wolf said.

Four other Montgomery County locations also were winners:

  • Abington Township, which received $490,320 for modernization of two traffic signals;
  • Lansdale Borough won $280,000 to upgrade seven traffic signal controller assemblies;
  • Lower Moreland Township will receive $527,732 for traffic signal upgrades at five intersections, include video detection, dilemma zone radar detection, emergency pre-emption, new controller and battery back-up, and pedestrian signals; and
  • Upper Moreland Township, $147,760 for traffic signal upgrades at four intersections, including video detection, countdown pedestrian signals, and ADA compliant pushbuttons with LED confirmation light.
