Cranberry touts signal savings

A traffic study by Carnegie Mellon University found that the township’s traffic signal timing project done in 2011 has saved commuters $600,000 in fuel and maintenance costs and saved the community about $2 million.
Yeganeh Mashayekh and Chris Hendrickson from CMU’s Traffic 21, part of the university’s Transportation Center, did the postdoctoral study to determine the impacts of Cranberry’s Signal Timing Project, which re-synchronized the traffic signal timings along the Route 19/228/Freedom Road corridor.
