Abington Get $428K from PA to Improve Two Intersections

Abington Township  received more than $428,000 to improve traffic signals at two area intersections.

The intersections at Greenwood Avenue and Washington Lane intersection, along with  Jenkintown Road and Meetinghouse Road intersection. Both intersections will receive technical upgrades. Improvements include new mast arms, signal heads, countdown pedestrian signals, video detection and radar dilemma zone detection, battery back-up, and upgraded ADA ramps, according to Governor Wolf’s Office.

This is just one of nine in Montgomery County and one of 70 across Pennsylvania that was approved Thursday by the state.

“This is the fourth round of funding disbursed to support increased safety and mobility across more Pennsylvania towns,” Governor Wolf said in a statement.

Funded through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s “Green Light-Go” program, 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 LED technology, traffic signal retiming, and related issues.
