Governor Wolf Announces Nearly $38 Million in Green Light-Go Grant Funds to Improve Traffic Safety

07/13/2022

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf announced today that 70 municipalities will receive over $37.8 million to support traffic signal upgrades, increasing safety and mobility across Pennsylvania's communities through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation's (PennDOT's) "Green Light-Go" program.

"The safety improvements supported by the Green Light-Go program help municipalities relieve congestion and traffic flow, as well as keep Pennsylvanians moving safely and efficiently," said Governor Wolf. "I'm proud to help our communities improve mobility for Pennsylvanians."

Green Light-Go grants are provided as reimbursement to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. These projects will be funded through the appropriation for fiscal year 2022-23. 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 (LED) technology installation, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
