LIMERICK PA – Traffic signal upgrades in Limerick (PA) Township – at the intersections of Ridge and Swamp pikes, and Ridge Pike and Limerick Center Road, respectively – are part of a $4.3 million transportation improvement project that will get under way across Montgomery County beginning today (Monday, Feb. 1, 2010), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced last week (Jan. 28).

Lane Electric Corp. of West Chester won PennDOT contracts for traffic signal upgrades at 32 intersections in 11 of the county’s municipalities, paid for by federal economic stimulus funds. The work is intended to improve traffic flow and increase pedestrian safety, PennDOT Safety Press Officer Jenny Robinson said.

Most intersections will receive new poles and signal heads, and many also will get new ramps and pedestrian countdown timers that comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. In each municipality, groups of traffic signals will be interconnected to provide better timing.

Lane will begin its work in Upper Dublin (PA) Township, and move its way to other locations. PennDOT gave no specific dates for the work to be done in Limerick.
