Green Light-Go Grants Awarded to Cranberry Townships in Butler, Venango

Two Cranberry Townships in the 21st Senate District will receive state grants to improve traffic safety under Pennsylvania’s new “Green Light-Go” program, according to Senator Scott Hutchinson.

Cranberry Township, Butler County, will receive $40,000 to develop contingency plans for Centracs Software.

Cranberry Township, Venango County, will receive $4,523 to upgrade traffic signals at eight intersections to LEDs within the township.

“The Green Light-Go program is an important investment by the Commonwealth in the safety of our communities,” said Senator Hutchinson. “I am pleased that our two local Cranberry Townships are among the municipalities that received these grants.”

A total of $1.8 million will be shared by 38 municipalities statewide under the current round of Green Light-Go funding. The program provides funding to municipalities for installing light-emitting diode (LED) technology, performing regional operations such as retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
