WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Traffic patterns at a Borough of Waynesboro intersection would be revamped under a proposal before the borough council.
Currently, vehicles southbound on Fairview Avenue are supposed to stop twice at the intersection where the road meets Cleveland Avenue and Fourth Street. The pair of stop signs are less than two car lengths apart.
"Nobody's stopping at the first one," Councilman Ronnie Martin said.
Martin, who oversees the council's street committee, presented the council last Wednesday with a proposal that would eliminate one stop sign.
The double stop signs were installed to enhance safety at the crosswalks, Mayor Richard Starliper said.
The intersection under review is the first one south of Fairview Elementary School.
Councilman Craig Newcomer said he spoke to the intersection's crossing guard, who was in favor of the proposal.
"I see the thoughts of having it there because of the crosswalk," Martin said. "That's going to be looked at real hard."
