More than 100 traffic signals in Northeast Philadelphia are set for upgrades, thanks to a $10 million grant from the federal government, U.S. Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz (D., Pa.) announced Monday.
The money comes from the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The traffic signals are along nearly 16 miles of roadway, with the majority on Bustleton, Castor, and Oxford Avenues. - Robert Moran
