WEST CHESTER, PA (July 14, 2022) – State Senator Carolyn Comitta announced today that nearly $980,000 has been awarded to upgrade and improve traffic signals at five intersections on Valley Forge Road in Tredyffrin Township.
“This investment in our infrastructure will help improve the safety and efficiency of our roadways,” Comitta said. “I strongly support this and other investments that make Tredyffrin and all of Chester County a safer community for drivers and pedestrians.”
The funding was made possible through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Green Light-Go grant program. This fund provides reimbursements to municipalities for efficiency and operational updates to existing traffic signals.
“After years of studying and planning for improvements along the Valley Forge Road corridor, we are excited to finally have the funding in place to upgrade the signal infrastructure to make it safer for both pedestrians and drivers,” said Tredyffrin Board of Supervisors Chair, Julie Gosse.
“Valley Forge Road is an important connector between homes, businesses, parks, and trails in the Township,” said Township Manager Bill Martin. “Receiving this funding will help us provide safer, more adequate pedestrian facilities for our community.”
Green Light-Go was made possible through Act 89 of 2013 and can be used for projects such as installing LED technology, signal retiming, developing special event plans, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
