New this year:

  • The pre-application scoping process will be coordinated through the Green Light-Go program office in the Bureau of Operations to ensure consistent reviews statewide.
  • Applicants are asked to verify a Commonwealth and Municipal Traffic Signal Maintenance Agreement is in place prior to submitting an application. Since this requires a resolution of the governing body, applicants should plan ahead to schedule passage of the resolution prior to the application deadline if the applicant has not already executed the agreement.
  • The cost estimating guidelines have been updated, and a template cost estimate spreadsheet is available. The template spreadsheet contains tabs for relevant sections of PennDOT specifications and includes standard item numbers applicable to traffic signals.
