Thomas, residents concerned about township road cont.

April 27, 2005

The supervisors budgeted $300,000 for ag preservation in 2005. Their goal is to partner with county and state programs to put more farmland into preservation, Thomas said.

A rash of crashes on a sharp turn in the 2000 block of Williamson Road prompted Thomas to ask for the board's approval to write a letter to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to ask for a study of the area. The board granted permission.

Thomas said that the advised speed on the turn is 20 mph and that some of the crashes are caused by driver error, such as DUI and speeding.

"Two property owners have called us about damage," he said. "One house has been struck several times."

Thomas said he would suggest to PennDOT the installation of center rumble strips. He wants PennDot to review the entire area for improvement, he said.
