HARRISBURG – A grant has been awarded to improve safety and traffic flow in Erie County communities as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Traffic Signal Technologies Grant (TSTG) program, announced Sen. Dan Laughlin (R-49).
The $441,200 grant given to Summit and Millcreek townships is for signal system upgrades and connection to PennDOT’s unified command and control software along the Peach Street corridor.
“Thanks to this grant, more improvements can be made to the traffic signals in our community,” said Laughlin. “I’m pleased we’re continuing efforts to increase safety, ensure better traffic flow and benefit all those who traverse Peach Street.”
The TSTG program was established by Act 54 of 2022 and is provided as reimbursement to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. Grant funding through the TSTG program may be utilized for a range of operational improvements including new traffic signal systems, adaptive signal control technology, automated traffic signal performance measures and connection to PennDOT’s unified command and control software.
