WAYNESBORO, PA. - About 20,000 vehicles roll through Washington Township on Pa. 16 each day, making it increasingly difficult for those motorists trying to get across the road or make a left turn along the corridor.
At one particularly busy intersection, that situation should improve next year after state Sen. Terry Punt, R-Franklin, announced Friday that the township will receive a $100,000 grant to install a traffic signal at the Oller Avenue intersection.
"We opened our business here in 1984, and from that time, we've been telling them how much we need a light here," said Paul Gunder, an associate broker with Jack Gaughen Realtor ERA at 1814 E. Main St.
"I'll be able to turn left and go home at the end of the day ... It's wonderful," said Magisterial District Judge Larry Pentz, whose office is on North Oller Avenue.
