Local Municipalities to Receive Traffic Light Upgrades, Says Emrick
MT. BETHEL – Improvements to select intersections in Forks, Palmer and Washington townships are being supported by a statewide grant program, according to state Rep. Joe Emrick (R-Nazareth). The three are among 38 municipalities that will receive nearly $2 million to underwrite the costs of upgrading traffic signals.

“The project is called ‘Green Light-Go,’” said Emrick. “The awards account for half the price tag of each project, with the remainder of the total cost being picked up by each individual municipality.”

Northampton County’s three projects, which are all within the 137th Legislative District, are as follows:

• Forks Township -- $13,284 to upgrade traffic signals at five intersections to more efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs) along Sullivan Trail.
• Palmer Township -- $57,125 for traffic signal retiming at 20 intersections and to upgrade traffic signals at nine intersections to LEDs within the township.
• Washington Township -- $2,791 to upgrade traffic signals at two Route 512 intersections to LEDs.

Questions about this event or any legislative issue should be directed to Emrick’s Mt. Bethel office at (570) 897-0401 or his Nazareth office at (610) 746-5090.
