WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Grant money will be sought to install a traffic light at the intersection of Pa. 16 and Northeast Avenue in Waynesboro, municipal officials said Monday. In early 2008, dozens of residents spoke strongly in favor of a new traffic light, while also criticizing a proposal that would have made Northeast Avenue a one-way road. Their comments supporting a traffic light serve as the basis of a cooperative effort by the Borough of Waynesboro and Washington Township to seek money for its installation.

The Borough of Chambersburg has given the green light to LEDs, taking on the rising cost of energy one bulb at a time. "We have gone through the process of converting almost all our traffic lights from incandescents to LEDs," Borough Council President William McLaughlin said. At this point, the borough has concentrated on replacing green and red lights while allowing amber bulbs to burn themselves out before being replaced, he said. The savings will be considerable, said Ron Pezon, the assistant superintendent of the borough's Electric Department.
