Bethlehem (July 12, 2018)– State Senator Lisa M. Boscola announced today that $67,982 in “Green Light-Go” funding has been awarded to the Borough of Hellertown to improve public safety along State Route 412 (Main Street) by upgrading four traffic signals throughout the corridor.
“Projects that assist municipalities to improve the efficiency and operation of their existing traffic signals are eligible for Green Light-Go funding”, Boscola said. “It’s great so see this state funding come back to our community for a project that will bring about important upgrades to signals along Route 412. This project will improve the safety along the corridor for not only the driving public but also for pedestrians and bicyclists.”
Created by Act 89 of 2013 and administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the “Green Light–Go Program” provides state funds for the operation and maintenance of traffic signals along critical and designated corridors on state highways. Statewide, 70 municipalities will receive funding of over $31 million.
