I was going by the vision plan that may one day happen. As for the other two I think they were on tap 1st because they are more affordable. Also I read if PennDOT approves the grant, design would occur in late 2015, with construction in 2016 on those two. (pipe dream timeline cause I highly doubt they could even do the study in such a time frame) So did they approve the grants for those locations? Well in July of 2016 they got $882,525 from the Commonwealth Financing Authority’s Act 13 Program. The funds will go toward:
• $315,000 for multimodal work at Aston Concord Road and Donnelly Avenue
• $332,500 for multimodal work at Aston Concord Road and MacIntyre Drive
• $235,025 for a watershed restoration project at Aston Newsome Property Park
These grants were on top of the 400k they got in May 2016 for the signal improvement funding. The black traffic signals were part of those funds.
It's not that what you say is wrong, it simply a matter of perspective.
Walter E. Williams, professor of economics at GMU, stated "Government income redistribution programs produce the same result as theft. In fact, that's what a thief does; he redistributes income. The difference between government and thievery is mostly a matter of legality
