$10 Million TIGER III Grant for Northeast Traffic Signals
U.S. Congresswoman Allyson Y. Schwartz - 13th District of Pennsylvania
Definitely not the most exciting TIGER announcement but it's nice to know that DOT thinks it's important.
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz announced today a $10 million grant to upgrade more than 100 existing traffic signals along three transit arteries covering nearly 16 miles in Philadelphia—the majority of them along Castor, Oxford and Bustleton Avenues in the Northeast.
For those who forgot:
The grant would cover half the cost of installing the systems along trolley Route 11, operating in West Philadelphia, and bus routes 58 and 59, which serve the Frankford Transportation Center...The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has pledged $10 million toward the program ― dubbed Improving Mobility for Pedestrians Cars and Transit, or IMPaCT ― with the city proposing to provide $4 million and SEPTA agreeing to kick in $2 million.
