Local Communities Receive $406,968 for Safety Projects

Three Butler County communities will receive state grants totaling $406,968 for safety improvement projects, according to Senator Scott Hutchinson.

Connoquenessing Township was awarded $187,000 to replace the traffic signal at the intersection of Route 68 and Kriess Road to accommodate additional lanes.

Cranberry Township was awarded $52,708 to install adaptive traffic signal system software along the Freedom Road and Rochester Road corridors.

Slippery Rock Borough was awarded $167,260 to upgrade the traffic signal at the intersection of Main Street and Keisler Road by installing 12-inch signal heads with LEDs, pedestrian countdown signals and facilities that are ADA accessible.

The local awards were part of $6 million in Automated Red Light Enforcement (ARLE) funding distributed to 21 municipalities statewide to fund 27 safety projects in the current round of grants.

Under state law, fines from red light violations at 30 intersections in Philadelphia provide the grant money. The current round of grants brings the total investments awarded through the ARLE funding program since 2010 to $45.4 million, funding 298 safety projects.
