White Township, Indiana County, will receive a $188,000 state grant to improve traffic safety under Pennsylvania’s “Green Light-Go” program, according to Senator Joe Pittman and Representative Jim Struzzi.
The township was awarded the grant to replace traffic signal supports and add pedestrian accommodations at the Ben Franklin Road/Warren Road intersection.
“This is one of the most congested intersections in Indiana County,” said Senator Pittman. “This grant will certainly improve traffic flow in the area. The Indiana Fire Association’s White Township Station is near this intersection, so these enhancements also help public safety response.”
“This project is an important step in what should be a long-term effort to overhaul traffic flow along Ben Franklin Road,” said Representative Struzzi. “It is gratifying to the see the state take an active role in improving safety for motorists and pedestrians.”
White Township was among 50 municipalities statewide sharing more than $15.6 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.
