BETHLEHEM (July 13, 2022)State Senator Lisa M. Boscola announced today that $173,000 in “Green Light-Go” funding has been awarded to Wilson Borough for a critical traffic safety project.

“The Green-Light-Go program is an important state program to assist municipalities with needed funding to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals, which are critical for the public safety of motorists and their passengers as well as pedestrians and bicyclists,” Boscola said. “These Green Light-Go funds will make important safety upgrades in Wilson Borough.”

Wilson Borough was awarded $173,000 for upgrades to the traffic signal at North 18th Street and Northampton Street.
