Stop sign approved for Walnut and Third
WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A four-way stop sign at the intersection of Walnut and East Third streets was approved by the Waynesboro Borough Council Wednesday night, a concession to Third Street residents who had asked for it to slow traffic and make their street safer.
The speed limit there is 25 mph, a posting residents say many drivers ignore.
The stop signs were recommended by the council's street committee following a traffic survey by the borough's engineering department and the urgings of Third Street residents.
Councilman Dick George, street committee chairman, made the motion. It was seconded by John Cook. The residents also asked for a four-way stop sign at the next intersection west at South Church and East Third streets. The street committee denied that request.
Council President Charles "Chip" McCammon cast the only dissenting vote.
"I'm opposed to more stop signs on Third Street," he said. "Third Street serves as an east-west bypass in the southern part of the borough."
