Green Light—Go: Pennsylvania's Municipal Signal Partnership Program; Invitation to Submit Applications
Under 74 Pa.C.S. Chapter 92 (relating to traffic signals) and 75 Pa.C.S. § 9511(e.1) (relating to allocation of proceeds), the Department of Transportation (Department) established the Green Light—Go: Pennsylvania's Municipal Partnership Program, also known as the Green Light—Go Program. The Green Light—Go Program is a competitive application and reimbursement grant program whereby municipalities and metropolitan or rural planning organizations can request financial assistance to replace, synchronize, time, operate and maintain traffic signals. A 20% match from grantees is required under 75 Pa.C.S. § 9511(e.1)(4).
During Fiscal Year 2023-2024, it is anticipated approximately $40 million will be available to municipalities and metropolitan or rural planning organizations for upgrading traffic signals to light-emitting diode technology and intelligent transportation applications, such as autonomous and connected vehicle-related technology, performing regional operations such as retiming, developing special event plans, monitoring traffic signals and for maintaining and operating traffic signals.
Additional information on eligible Green Light—Go Program projects and the program guidelines can be found on the Department's Traffic Signal web site at http://www.dot.state.pa.us/signals including a link to the online electronic application. Supporting documents may be attached to the online application. Only the application and supporting documents attached to the online application will be considered. Paper copies are not required.
The Department invites municipalities and metropolitan or rural planning organizations to submit electronic Green Light-Go Program applications between February 1, 2024, and February 29, 2024. Prior to application submission, applicants must complete and submit a Pre-Application Project Scoping Form to the Bureau of Operations in accordance with the Green Light—Go Program guidelines.

In addition to the electronic application, applicants must update information in the Department's Traffic Signal Asset Management System as indicated in the Green Light—Go Program guidelines posted on the Department's Traffic Signal web site.
