HARRISBURG – Traffic flow in the borough of Danville is about to be upgraded thanks to a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) grant, according to state Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Montour).
“I applaud local officials who successfully applied to the Traffic Signal Technologies Grant program,” Culver said. “The more than $145,000 grant they’ve been awarded will be used to purchase software that will connect traffic signals throughout the borough and facilitate real-time monitoring and operation of those signals.”
Danville is one of 20 municipalities statewide to receive the grant, which reimburses municipalities for updates to improve the efficiency and operation of existing traffic signals. The list of possible operational improvements includes new traffic signal systems, adaptive signal control technology, automated traffic signal performance measures, and connection to PennDOT’s unified command and control software.
For more information about this or any state-related issue, please contact Culver’s Danville district office, which is open Monday through Friday from 1-4 p.m. in the Montour County Administration Building at 435 E. Front St. The office may also be reached by calling 570-275-3700.
