Four municipalities in Chester County will receive more than $300,000 in total funding for traffic-control system upgrades.
The grants are part of $4.7 million in statewide funding for projects that are paid for with fines collected from red light enforcement cameras in Philadelphia, although no such cameras will be installed from the funds in Chester County.
The grants are:
- $83,200 to East Whiteland for traffic signal controller upgrades and $10,225 for traffic signal generator plug installations at 12 intersections.
- $184,000 to Franklin for traffic signal installation at the intersection of Route 896 and Route 841.
- $10,000 to London Britain for installation of a center line rumble strip on Penn Grove Road.
- $42,500 to Phoenixville for re-timing closed-loop traffic signal systems.
“These funds will help local municipalities upgrade traffic lights and other traffic control systems,” said state Sen. Andy Dinniman, D-19th of West Whiteland. “The improvements mean a safer and swifter commute for motorists throughout our region.”
