Monroe municipalities to receive state money for traffic signal improvements

HARRISBURG – Three Monroe County municipalities are among 70 statewide that will receive more than $31 million to support traffic signal upgrades, increasing safety and mobility.

  • Pocono Township -- $359,658 to install an adaptive traffic signal system at seven intersections along State Routes 611 and 715.
  • Smithfield Township -- $552,682 to install an adaptive traffic signal system at 10 intersections along U.S. Route 209 in Smithfield Township and Middle Smithfield Township.
  • Stroud Township -- $502,439 to add an intersection to the existing system and add adaptive traffic signal system for four intersections along State Route 611.

Pike and Wayne counties did not receive any funding.

“This is the fourth round of funding disbursed to support increased safety and mobility across more Pennsylvania towns,” Governor Tom Wolf said. “The Green Light-Go program addresses mechanisms that if not functioning properly can aggravate congestion and impede traffic flow.”
