WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Concerned with safety at the intersection of Pa. 16 and Monterey Lane, a Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., man on Wednesday asked the Washington Township (Pa.) Supervisors to consider a traffic signal for the mountaintop.
Eric Schlosser said the problems with speeding, parked vehicles obstructing line of sight, passing, and cross traffic worsened in the past 10 years.
"It's chaos," Schlosser said. "It's the Wild West."
The intersection has Tracey's Corner and a real estate company on the south side
Some of the supervisors said they, too, have seen accidents narrowly avoided in that area. However, they said they're not sure what the right solution is.
"Roundabouts are tools, and they're a tool PennDOT is really looking at," Supervisor Jeff Geesaman said, saying that option would require more land than a traffic light.
