Harmony Township was awarded $4,500 to upgrade three traffic signals in the township to LEDs along Duss Avenue at the intersections of Dearborn Street, Keystone Road and 24th Street, also known as Route 989.
Projects on corridors with fewer than 10,000 vehicles per day will be managed by the municipalities, and PennDOT will manage any project with signals on corridors that have greater than 10,000 vehicles per day. Both types of projects will require a 50 percent match from the municipality.
PennDOT is now accepting applications from municipalities for the second round of Green Light-Go funding. During the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2015, up to $25 million will be allocated to municipalities 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.
Green Light-Go was made possible by Act 89, the transportation plan that Gov. Tom Corbett signed in November 2013.
The application period runs from Dec. 20 to Feb. 27.
