Half million dollar traffic light upgrades planned for Hermitage and Sharon

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. -

A half-million dollars from the state will help pay for traffic signal upgrades at a couple of intersections in Sharon and Hermitage.

The Governor announced on Thursday that the City of Sharon is getting $316,000 to modernize the traffic signal at South Sharpsville Avenue, East Connelly Boulevard, and the Shenango Valley Freeway.

In addition, $204,604 has been granted to upgrade the intersection of Keel Ridge Road and East State Street including new signal heads, mast arms, controller assembly, wiring, and radar detection.

The money is part of $31 million made available to upgrade signals in 70 communities.

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.
