Aument Announces Traffic Safety Funding For Local Community

Mountville Borough receives $461,000 to enhance safety at dangerous intersection

(HARRISBURG) – Mountville Borough will receive $460,953 through PennDOT’s Automated Red Light Enforcement (ARLE) program to enhance traffic safety through the modernization of an existing traffic signal at an intersection in the community, according to Senator Ryan Aument (R-36).

The funds will be used to revitalize the intersection of West Main Street (Route 462), East Main Street (Route 462), North Manor Street and South Manor Street (Route 3017), including the replacement of 8” 4-way signal heads with 12” signals on mast arms.

“Mountville residents have been rightfully concerned about the dangerous situations created by the layout of this particular intersection, some of which have even resulted in tragedy” said Aument. “These funds will help make this intersection safer for all motorists travelling through the area.”

The Mountville project was selected, among others, by an eight-member committee based on criteria such as safety benefits, cost, and local impact. More information on ARLE can be found here.
