Grants in Carnegie and Coraopolis will be used to calm traffic and replace aging stoplights.
On Jan. 5, the boroughs of Carnegie and Coraopolis were awarded grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Automated Red-Light Enforcement fund.
Carnegie was awarded $10,422 to install radar feedback signs on Forsythe Road. The signs show drivers their speed, and act as traffic calming devices.
Coraopolis will receive $298,250 for traffic signal replacement to be used to update overhead signals to reduce redlight running and pedestrian accommodations. The lights are slated for Montour Street and State Avenue.
According to Sen. Wayne Fontana’s office, PennDOT has distributed approximately $15 million in ARLE funding to 32 municipalities to fund 36 safety projects. This round of investment brings the total dollars awarded through the ARLE funding program to $127.79 million, funding 537 transportation enhancement projects since 2010.
