West Norriton Receives Grant Funding Through Automated Red Light Enforcement (ARLE) Program

Governor Tom Wolf today announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will distribute nearly $11.5 million in Automated Red Light Enforcement (ARLE) funding to 35 municipalities statewide to fund 41 safety projects.

“This program helps communities across the state make investments in traffic flow and safety,” Governor Wolf said. “These improvements complement the many road, bridge, and multimodal projects happening in Pennsylvania.”

Under state law, fines from red light violations at 30 intersections in Philadelphia supply the grant funding. Pennsylvania’s ARLE program aims to improve safety at signalized intersections by providing automated enforcement at locations where data shows red-light running has been an issue.

The law specifies that projects improving safety, enhancing mobility and reducing congestion can be considered for funding. Municipalities submitted more than 143 applications, totaling over $34 million in requests.

Projects were selected by an eight-member committee based on criteria such as benefits and effectiveness, cost, local and regional impact, and cost sharing.

This investment brings the total dollars awarded through the ARLE funding program since 2010 to $62.87 million, funding 366 safety projects.

West Norriton Township approved projects are:

West Norriton Township – $196,090 to upgrade the traffic signal at the intersection of Route 3006 (Whitehall Road) and Sterigere Street by installing new ADA curb ramps, pedestrian signal modules, battery back-up system, emergency preemption system, update the controller cabinet and upgrading the vehicle detection system.

West Norrition Township - $417,246 to upgrade the traffic signal and improve geometric layout of the intersection of Route 3006 (Whitehall Road) and Route 3019 (Marshall Street) by installing a new traffic signal and increase the radii on the corners of the intersection.

Funds from the Township's Traffic Impact Fee Fund will serve as matching dollars for the ARLE grants.
