Red Light Enforcement Funds Going to 35 Pennsylvania Cities

The state's Automated Red Light Enforcement program works to improve safety at signalized intersections by providing automated enforcement at locations where data shows red light running has been a problem. Total funding since 2010 has reached $62.87 million for 366 safety projects.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced Feb. 26 that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation 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. These improvements complement the many road, bridge, and multimodal projects happening in Pennsylvania," he said.

Under state law, fines from red light violations at 30 intersections in Philadelphia supply the grant funding. The state's ARLE program works to improve safety at signalized intersections by providing automated enforcement at locations where data shows red light running has been a problem.

The law specifies that projects improving safety, enhancing mobility, and reducing congestion can be considered for funding. Municipalities submitted more than 143 applications, in all more than $34 million in requests, and the recipient projects were chosen by an eight-member committee based on criteria such as benefits and effectiveness, cost, local and regional impact, and cost sharing.

Total ARLE awards since 2010 are up to $62.87 million, funding 366 safety projects overall.
