Areas like the intersection of Mt. Zion Road and the private Colonial Farm Lane, Monday, Oct. 28, 2019, may undergo changes per the Springettsbury Township Transportation Plan. The Township Board of Supervisors voted Oct. 24 to accept the final draft of the plan, which details a 20 year analysis of current and future viable solutions for improving roads and intersections.

Three York County municipalities received grants from PennDOT that will be used to fund several traffic safety projects, Gov. Tom Wolf announced Tuesday. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation will distribute more than $13.1 million from the Automated Red Light Enforcement program to 34 state municipalities, including Glen Rock, Springettsbury Township and York City, according to a news release. 

Glen Rock received $204,592 to upgrade a traffic signal at the intersection of Baltimore and Manchester streets, install new ramps that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and add pedestrian signage. 

Springettsbury Township was awarded a $276,608 grant, which will be used to "modernize" the traffic signal at the intersection of Memory Lane and Industrial Highway.

York City received $327,446 in grant money to improve pedestrian, bicycle and mobility safety. Funds will go toward audible pedestrian signals, high-visibility pavement markings, ADA-compliant curb ramps and pedestrian and bike signage.

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