HARRISBURG — Rep. Jason Ortitay (R-Washington/Allegheny) today announced three PennDOT Green Light-Go Program grants were awarded to Bridgeville Borough and Cecil and South Fayette townships.

“These grants help municipalities fund important traffic signal projects that improve traffic flow and safety,” Ortitay said. “While many people don’t give much thought to traffic signals, if they are not operating properly, they can have a major effect on everyday life.”

These reimbursement grants support the costs of upgrading traffic signals to increase safety and mobility across Pennsylvania. Eligible projects include work on existing traffic signals to install light-emitting diode (LED) technology and perform regional operations, such as retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as work to upgrade traffic signals to the latest technologies.

Those receiving grants were:
  • Bridgeville Borough -- $213,282 for the installation of adaptive traffic signal equipment and software along Washington Avenue at Station Street, Bower Hill Road and Prestley Road.

  • Cecil Township -- $416,850 for traffic signal system upgrades at seven intersections along the Southpointe Boulevard corridor.

  • South Fayette Township -- $77,484 for installation of adaptive traffic signal equipment and software along Washington Pike at Bursca Drive and at Twin Ponds Lane.

The 46th Legislative District includes Collier and South Fayette townships and Bridgeville, Heidelberg, McDonald and Oakdale boroughs in Allegheny County. It also encompasses Canton, Cecil, Mt. Pleasant, Robinson and Smith townships and Burgettstown, McDonald and Midway boroughs in Washington County.
