Harborcreek Township is applying for a grant update for five failing emergency traffic light signals.
The grant from the Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority would allow Harborcreek Township to improve the existing Relco system that is no longer working properly.
The upgrade would effectively signal drivers to follow state law and pull to the right, clearing the intersection.
Currently only thirty-five percent of Erie County's traffic lights have the functioning system.
The rest are in need of repairs or replacement.
Harborcreek Township wants to help emergency vehicles reach their destination as quickly as possible, while still keeping its residents safe.
While waiting on word of a grant, officials want to remind motorists to still quickly clear the intersections as emergency vehicles pass.
