Limerick Township Grant Success Continues!

Limerick Township is pleased to announce that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has awarded Limerick Township a $37,290 grant to install audible pedestrian signal improvements to the intersection of 10th Avenue and Main Street through the Automated Red-Light Enforcement (ARLE) funding program. Though the intersection is in Royersford Borough, based on a 2003 agreement, Limerick Township is responsible to maintain the traffic signal and associated crossing measures. 
“Safety of all our residents is an ongoing focus and high priority objective of the Board”
states Board Chairperson, Kara Shuler. “We are thankful for these ARLE grant funds which will assist with the costs of these important pedestrian safety upgrades.” 
The Board prioritized this project and the submission of the ARLE grant application, based on a request from an individual that is visually impaired and frequently crosses this intersection.  
“This state grant money will help make Limerick Township safer for pedestrians and so increase the quality of life for people living in this beautiful part of the 146th,” states State Representative, Joseph Ciresi.  “This is good government at work enabling infrastructure improvements that will protect pedestrians and motorists alike for years to come.”
On behalf of the Limerick Township Board of Supervisors and our residents, we wish to extend our sincerest appreciation to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for this ARLE grant award and their continued support.
