BETHLEHEM (DEC 13, 2022) – State Senator Lisa M. Boscola announced today that Lower Nazareth Township has been awarded a $256,000 state grant through the Traffic Signal Technologies Grant (TSTG) program for signal system upgrades and connection to PennDOT’s unified command and control software along Route 248.

“The Traffic Signal Technologies Grant program was enacted earlier this year to provide much needed resources to local governments to assist with implementing technologies that will help ease traffic congestion and improve traffic flow in heavily traveled corridors such as Rt. 248 in Lower Nazareth Township,” Senator Boscola stated.  “It’s critical that the Commonwealth partner with our municipalities to address traffic congestion issues and I am pleased that this state funding will allow Lower Nazareth Township to move forward on addressing issues along Route 248.”

The Traffic Signal Technologies Grant program was created as part of Act 54 of 2022, enacted on July 11, 2022, which included $5 million to provide grants to municipalities to install and maintain traffic signal technologies. The TSTG program is a reimbursement grant program for municipalities that is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
