WEST CHESTER (October 24) – State Senator Andy Dinniman recently announced that four municipalities in Chester County will receive $ 421,083 in total funding for traffic control system upgrades.

The grants are part of $6.6 million in statewide funding for projects that are paid for with fines collected from red light enforcement cameras in the city of Philadelphia.

The grants are as follows:trafficlight

  • $290,083 for Caln Township to add signals to the synchronized system on Reeceville Road and U.S. Route 322.
  • $73,500 for East Whiteland Township to upgrade the signal, monitoring and testing ability for its 35 traffic signals.
  • $49,000 for Easttown Township to upgrade eight intersections to LED traffic and pedestrians signals.
  • $8,500 for Oxford Borough to upgrade the intersection of South Third Street and Hodgson Street to LED traffic signals.

“These funds will help local municipalities upgrade traffic lights and other traffic control systems,” Dinniman said. “The improvements mean a safer and smoother commute for motorists throughout our region.”

Under the state law that established red light camera enforcement, fines from infractions are evenly distributed between the city of Philadelphia and the state. The cameras are located at 28 intersections in the city.

The law specifies that projects improving safety, enhancing mobility and reducing congestion can be considered for funding. Of the 226 applications submitted, only 41projects in 37 municipalities were approved for funding.

Since the Automated Red Light Enforcement funding program was established in 2010, almost $40 million in funding has been invested in 275 projects statewide.
