Reading, PA – State Senator Judy Schwank (D-Berks) was encouraged by Gov. Tom Wolf’s announcement that 24 municipalities will receive more than $5 million to support traffic signal upgrades. Funding comes through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s “Green Light-Go” program.

One of the municipalities receiving funding is in Berks County.

  • Wyomissing Borough – $173,995 for LED replacement, pedestrian signal upgrades, and controller upgrades at 29 intersections.

“This funding is imperative to ensure the safety of the public, as well as smoother traffic flow,” Schwank said. “I applaud the borough of Wyomissing for putting together a successful application to make these improvements.”

The grants are provided as reimbursement to municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. Grant funding through the Green Light-Go Program may be utilized for a range of operational improvements including, but not limited to: light-emitting diode (LED) technology instillation, traffic signal retiming, developing special event plans and monitoring traffic signals, as well as upgrading traffic signals to the latest technologies.
