Funding for traffic signal upgrades in Silver Spring Township was approved last week under PennDOT’s “Green Light-Go” program, which aims to increase safety and mobility across communities all over the Commonwealth.
“The Green Light-Go funding award will make a positive impact in the 87th District by addressing congestion and traffic flow issues that impede drivers and pedestrians alike,” said Kutz. “Thanks to the grant, residents of Silver Spring and those passing through can get where they need to go more safely and efficiently. It’s great to see state dollars invested locally, where Cumberland County and its growing population will benefit.”
Under Green Light-Go, Silver Spring Township will receive $408,128 to update vehicle detection along the Carlisle Pike (Route 11) corridor.
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 2023-24. 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.
