Albion, Erie County, and Union City will receive state grants to underwrite the costs of upgrading traffic signals under Pennsylvania’s “Green Light-Go” program, according to Senator Dan Laughlin.
Albion will receive $223,055 to replace the traffic signal at State Street (U.S. Route 6N) and Main Street (State Route 18).
Erie County will receive $255,688 for complete modernization of the traffic signal at East 10th Street and Holland Avenue in the City of Erie.
Union City will receive $120,000 for corridor improvements to three traffic signals along Main Street (U.S. Route 6) including countdown pedestrian signals and LED replacement.
“These grants will assist in making important improvements to selected traffic signals in our communities,” said Senator Laughlin said. “These improvements not only benefit the residents of those communities, but improve safety and traffic flow for everyone who drives those roadways.”
The local communities were among 70 municipalities statewide sharing more than $31 million in the current round of Green Light-Go funding. The program provides funding to install light-emitting diode (LED) technology, perform regional operations such as retiming, develop special event plans and monitor traffic signals, as well as upgrade traffic signals to the latest technologies.
