Green Light-Go Grants Awarded to Connoquenessing, Cranberry Townships

Two Butler County communities will receive state grants to underwrite the costs of upgrading traffic signals under Pennsylvania’s “Green Light-Go” program, according to Senator Hutchinson.

Connoquenessing Township will receive $160,000 for traffic signal upgrades along Route 68 at Kriess Road and Eagle Mill Road.

Cranberry Township will receive $612,050 to upgrade three traffic signals along Route 19 at St. Francis Way. The township will also receive $138,240 to install adaptive traffic signal equipment and software along the Route 19 corridor.

“These grants will assist Connoquenessing and Cranberry townships in making important improvements to selected traffic signals in their communities,” said Senator Hutchinson. “These improvements not only benefit the residents of those communities, but improve safety and traffic flow for everyone who drives those roadways.”

Connoquenessing and Cranberry townships were among 94 municipalities sharing $33 million in 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.
