SPC Completes 3rd Cycle of Regional Traffic Signal Program
Nearly $4 Million in Upgrades to 148 Intersections
Pittsburgh, PA- The Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission’s (SPC) award-winning Regional Traffic Signal Program is committed to implementing projects with their federal, state, and local planning partners that demonstrate innovation, coordination, and measurable results. Since 2008, this program and its projects embody the implementation of safe and efficient traffic operations, providing outstanding cost-savings, environmental, and quality-of-life benefits to the communities and residents throughout the 10-county Southwestern Pennsylvania region. SPC, in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), its planning partners, and local municipalities across the region, has completed its third cycle of projects under the Regional Traffic Signal Program.
