Mechanicsburg Borough is one of 35 municipalities in the state to receive part of nearly $11.5 million in Automated Red Light Enforcement funding, the governor’s office announced Monday.
“This program helps communities across the state make investments in traffic flow and safety,” Gov. Tom Wolf said in a news release. “These improvements complement the many road, bridge, and multimodal projects happening in Pennsylvania.”
Fines from red light violations at 30 intersections in Philadelphia supply the grant funding for signalized intersections where data shows red-light running is an issue.
Mechanicsburg will received $60,000 to improve safety by re-timing traffic signals at seven intersections and upgrading LED modules at 10 intersections in the borough.
Projects were selected by an eight-member committee based on criteria such as benefits, effectiveness, cost, local and regional impact and cost-sharing.
