Today, State Senator Stewart J. Greenleaf announced the approval of over $2.5 million in state funding for traffic signal improvements in Upper Southampton Township, Hatboro, and Lower Moreland Township.
State-wide, 94 municipalities will receive $33 million to support the costs of upgrading traffic signals under the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s “Green Light-Go” program.
Funding for projects in the 12th Senate District:
- Hatboro Borough — $1,330,508 for Traffic Signal Equipment Upgrades along Montgomery Avenue at Jacksonville Road.
- Lower Moreland Township — $148,080 for Traffic Signal Equipment and Safety Upgrades along Byberry Road at Pine Road.
- Upper Southampton Township — $1,079,069 for installation of Adaptive Traffic Signal Equipment and Software along the Second Street Pike Corridor.
“This funding supports increased safety and mobility across our towns,” said Senator Greenleaf. “It’s critical that we keep up with new technology as our municipalities grow along with vehicle traffic.”
