Speed limit posted for Northeast Avenue

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The speed limit for Northeast Avenue, within Waynesboro borough limits, will be set at 25 mph with new signs thanks to a unanimous vote by the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday.

Since no signs are posted on the street in the borough, it was 55 mph by default.

The council will again discuss the street's traffic issues at a workshop meeting March 23, which was rescheduled from a canceled workshop last Saturday.

The council has gone back and forth for more than a decade about whether to install a traffic light at the intersection of Northeast Avenue and Pa. 16.
