Rep. Wendi Thomas (R-Bucks) announced that Northampton Township is receiving funds for upgrades to traffic signals at two intersections along Bristol Road. The grant from PennDOT’s Green Light-Go program totals $152,320.
“This program helps municipalities relieve congestion, improve safety and traffic flow,” said Thomas. “I believe it will bring major improvements to our area.”
Northampton was one of 70 municipalities to share $37.8 million in funds to support traffic signal upgrades. Also receiving funding in Bucks County are:
– Falls Township: $244,290 for upgrades to the traffic signal at Trenton Road and N. Olds Blvd.
– Lower Makefield Township: $305,320 for upgrades to the traffic signal at Pine Grove Road (SR 2071) and Big Oak Road (SR 2024)
Green Light-Go grants are provided as reimbursements 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.
