The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently awarded more than $15.6 million to 50 municipalities through Green Light-Go: Pennsylvania’s Municipal Signal Partnership Program to support traffic signal upgrades.

Now in its sixth round of funding, the program reimburses municipalities for updates that improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. The goal is to reduce congestion and improve safety and mobility on state and local highways.

Funding can be used to upgrade traffic signals to the latest technologies, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, light-emitting diode (LED) technology installation, and other operational improvements.
