Greencastle Borough Project Part of Municipalities Receiving Green Light-Go Funds

Governor Josh Shapiro has announced that 77 municipalities in Pennsylvania, including several in Franklin County, will be awarded over $35.5 million through the “Green Light-Go” program by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

The program aims to enhance traffic signal systems to improve safety and mobility. Municipalities will be reimbursed for upgrading existing traffic signals, which is expected to alleviate congestion and enhance traffic flow.

Governor Shapiro emphasized the Commonwealth’s commitment to serving its residents and enhancing efficiency. The funds will support various operational improvements, including LED technology installation, traffic signal retiming, and technology upgrades.

One of the projects in Franklin County involves Greencastle Borough, receiving $229,080 for updated signal equipment along Antrim Way (Route 11) and Baltimore St. (Route 16).

This funding reflects Pennsylvania’s dedication to improving infrastructure and mobility efficiently. The impact will be felt directly in the improved traffic management and safety for both drivers and pedestrians in Franklin County.
