SPEED LIMIT & WEIGHT LIMIT STUDIES & POSTINGS
Speed limit studies were recently completed on Kepple Road, Blackburn Road, Snyder Road and Adams Avenue. Adams Avenue is now posted at 35 mph and the other three roads in the study are posted at 30 mph. Weight Limit Studies were also completed for all Township roads and many have been posted at 10 or 12 ton limits to protect from users who may damage the roads.
REFLECTORS ADDED ON PIKE ROAD
Reflectors were recently added on the two concrete islands where Pike Road goes off of Route 22. It was pointed out from a concerned citizen that it is hard to see the islands when turning onto Pike
form Route 22. The suggestion was investigated by the roadmasters in conjunction with PennDOT and the reflectors you now see in place makes the area much safer.
