martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Del. Craig Blair said Thursday he will be one of many people who will be upset if someone dies because the state Division of Highways does not install a traffic light at the intersection of U.S. 11 and Spring Mills Road. Traffic at the light has become heavier than normal since Spring Mills Middle School opened last month, Blair said. Blair, R-Berkeley, spoke during a joint meeting Thursday afternoon with members of the Berkeley County Board of Education, Berkeley County Commission, local legislators and a Division of Highways official.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Development of a Pa. 16 property could expedite the installation of a traffic light for the road's intersection with Northeast Avenue, according to Wednesday's discussion between the Waynesboro Borough Council and a Camp Hill, Pa., developer. George Lulos, representing WAM Enterprises, said his company recently met with representatives of Waynesboro Mall. "We talked about ways to coordinate access to 800 E. Main St., the property part of the application" to be rezoned, Lulos said.

waynesboro@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO - Unless the Waynesboro Borough Council reverses itself again, the long-awaited project to build a $1.2 million synchronized traffic light system on Main Street could begin in June 2005, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. The project, if it gets under way as planned, would be finished by the end of November 2005, PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny said Friday. The seven-intersection traffic control system runs east along Main Street from North Grant Street to Welty Road in Washington Township.

When I'm sitting in the dentist's chair, my main objective is to try to stay alive. It takes all my concentration, so I'm usually not terribly conscious of extraneous conversations or events. However, as I was having my teeth cleaned, I heard Taryn, the pickmaster general, mention something about a "Stale Green. " At first I thought she was talking about something she found on my teeth. But it turned out it had something to do with traffic patterns, which immediately distracted me from the chiseling, since human driving behavior is a topic close to my heart.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- It was a year ago when Grant Olson saw an elderly man start to cross between parking lots at Waynesboro Hospital. Olson, of Oyer Court, was driving south on Roadside Avenue toward CVS Pharmacy at the time. "As he got to the curb, he stumbled and fell on the street in front of my car," Olson told the Waynesboro Borough Council on Wednesday. A proposal to funnel more traffic onto Roadside Avenue would further make the road unsafe, especially considering the tractor-trailers that would use it, Olson argued, saying his small vehicle was able to stop when he hit the brakes.

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.

Motorists could be encountering a new traffic signal at the intersection of East Main Street and Sunnyside Avenue when Waynesboro Mall is redeveloped, municipal officials said Monday. “We have an agreement with the proposed developer to bear the cost of the (traffic) light,” Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said. The Waynesboro Borough Council will be reviewing that agreement with J.C. BAR Properties Inc. at its meeting tonight. The agreement also calls for the borough to be absolved of maintenance for a period of time.

WAYNESBORO, PA. -- The Washington Township Supervisors say the Waynesboro Borough Council is stuck with the bill for a new traffic light at the intersection of Pa. 16 and Northeast Avenue. Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger, on behalf of the council, sent the supervisors a letter dated Sept. 17 and in it asked for shared funding. The council talked last Wednesday about borrowing money for the project and asking the supervisors to pay for half. The borough engineer estimated the traffic light could cost more than $100,000.
