New Hanover Approves Traffic Study at Routes 663/73
Written by Russell Hessler, Correspondent
2014-04-16

        New Hanover continues actions to improve traffic flow in the township. At its April 14 meeting, the board of supervisors approved spending $4,250 for an engineering study to be done at the Route 663 and 73 (Car Corner) intersection. The purpose of the study is to determine the feasibility of widening the road and installing a left turn lane from 73 westbound to 663 southbound.

        According to interim Township Manager Michael McGann, "PennDOT is still not convinced that a traffic light at that intersection is needed. They will definitely not approve one without this study."

When asked by supervisors whether PennDOT could still reject the request despite the study, McGann said, "That's correct. They still could reject it." He continued, "At least this way we're improving our chances by giving them (PennDOT) what they're requesting."

The study will conducted by McMahon and Associates the township's traffic engineering firm.

        In other traffic-related business, the board of supervisors approved two resolutions that will authorize the necessary signatures and the submission of applications for PennDOT approval of traffic signals at the following intersections:  Swamp Pike and Middle Creek Road, and Swamp Pike and Sanatoga/Fagleysville Road.

        The board approved a motion to release an escrow amount of $115,099.83 for the Rosenberry Ridge development upon recommendation of David Leh, of Gilmore and Associates, the township's engineering firm.

        Supervisors also voted to accept the resignation of Brian Parke from the Recreation Committee, as of April 4.
