Pennsylvania to receive funding for traffic signals uprgrade

May 21, 2017 by  

Tom Wolf, the governor of Pennsylvania, recently announced that $33m will be going to 94 municipalities throughout Pennsylvania to help improve their current traffic signals and systems.

This funding was dispersed by the Green Light-Go program, which is a program that was created to improve safety on Pennsylvania roads by providing the funding necessary to improve upon existing traffic signals.

Wolf, in a press release on the subject of the Green Light-Go program, said:

“This is the third round of funding disbursed to support increased safety and mobility across more Pennsylvania towns. The Green Light-Go program addresses a fundamental trigger for congestion, deficient traffic signals, and the results will mean better traffic flow.”

Funding for each individual municipality ranges from $10,000 to $7,000,000 and will go towards paying for matters such as traffic light replacements, LED traffic signal upgrades, and the installation of adaptive traffic signal software and equipment. Some of the municipalities that will be receiving this funding include Monroeville, Upper St Clair Township, Springdale, Connellsville, and McMurray, Pennsylvania.

For more information regarding which municipalities will be receiving funding from the Green Light-Go program, visit the Penn Live website. To find out more about the Green Light-Go program or to view flyers and other materials about the program and its objectives, go to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation website.

April exhibition gives locals some financial fundamentals

April 20, 2017 by  

The Peters Township Public Library in McMurray, Pennsylvania recently began hosting a traveling exhibit called Thinking Money, which is an exhibit designed to inform teens and adults about money.

The Thinking Money exhibit consists of large, colorful book-shaped objects containing illustrations and banners that explain such matters as credit scores and financial fraud. These parts of the exhibit will be accessible to all visitors until the exhibit is finished.

The Assistant Library Director, Sue Miller, said about the Thinking Money exhibition:

“Money affects all of us, but many of us lack the information we need to make smart decisions about our financial futures. Thinking Money is designed to teach us about financial literacy in a way that is not only understandable, but fun, and we’re proud to bring it to our library – the only one in Pennsylvania!”

The exhibits and the programs that it will be hosting are free to the public. For more information regarding the Peters Township Public Library, or to see the original article about the Thinking Money exhibition, visit the Peters Township Public Library website.

The exhibit was first revealed on April 1 and will be ending in 10 days’ time on April 30, so those looking to get their fill of financial wisdom are advised to make their move quickly to avoid disappointment.
