Tidioute Receives $15,493 for Pedestrian Safety Project

Tidioute Borough, Warren County, will receive a $15,493 state grant for a pedestrian safety improvement project, according to Senator Scott Hutchinson.

Tidioute will use the grant to install four solar flashing school zone beacons to improve student and resident safety within the school zone along Main Street and Jefferson Street.

The local award was 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.
