City of McKeesport to Receive Traffic Safety Improvement Funds

Sen. Jim Brewster announced that McKeesport is set to receive funding assistance to improve traffic safety through the Automated Red-Light Enforcement (ARLE) fund.

“This funding is instrumental to improve traffic flow and safety,” Brewster said. “I am glad to see our region receiving assistance to invest in traffic projects that will ensure both motorists and pedestrians are able to travel safely.”

Three projects were approved for ARLE funding totaling $344,000.

They include:

  • McKeesport Traffic Safety Project;
  • Versailles Avenue and Evans Street Signal Replacement; and
  • Lysle Boulevard and Coursin Street Audible Pedestrian Upgrade.

The approved projects will provide a variety of traffic safety improvements in McKeesport such as new traffic signal supports, updated pedestrian accommodations, and the creation of traffic safety programs.

According to Brewster, the improvements implemented with the ARLE funding will help to remediate speeding and sight issues that have concerned pedestrians and motorists in McKeesport.

“As travel increases in our area, we must do what we can to provide for traffic improvements that keep motorists and pedestrians safe,” Brewster said. “I believe this funding is an excellent step in addressing the traffic concerns of local residents and those traveling through the area.”
