Upper Hanover Supervisors Discuss Several Traffic Issues
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent


PennDOT reviewing Route 663 and Geryville Pike Changes


            Traffic signals and potential detours were important agenda items for the Upper Hanover Board of Supervisors at their meeting on Tuesday, August 9.

            Sandy Koza, the traffic consultant from McMahon Associates, attended the meeting to update the supervisors on the progress of the Route 663 and Geryville Pike traffic signal project.  She said that PennDOT was still reviewing the report submitted by McMahon.

            Koza said that PennDOT had informed her firm that left turn phases for the signal were not warranted, much to the dismay of the board.  Though the supervisors had the perception that more crashes had occurred because of left turns, Koza said the actual studies said otherwise.

           She did note, however, that the studies did not include 2021 and 2022. The supervisors thought that crashes had increased in the past two years.  They asked Koza to resubmit to PennDOT with the 2021 information and to get the 2022 reports from the state police, to see if it has any effect on PennDOT's decision.

            Across the township with another traffic signal, David Campolongo, facilities manager for Knoll, asked the supervisors to consider changing the timing for the signal at Water Street and Gravel Pike during dismissal time for Knoll employees. The supervisors asked Koza to have her firm do a study after school is in session, to account for school buses.

            Township Engineer Jon Weber presented a request, from the developer of the new development Glenwood Chase, for the closure of Hendricks Road and a detour for 90 days. The closure would be for the installation of water and sewer lines, road widening, and milling and paving.

            The developer was not in attendance, and the supervisors had many questions, so the request was tabled for a later date.

            Solicitor Joseph Bresnan reported that the judge had signed the order regarding Powderbourne and the shot that had been falling in neighbors' yards. A representative for the gun club told Bresnan that bamboo had already been planted to serve as a screen, which was part of the order.

            Township Manager Ann Klepfer asked the supervisors to consider the installation of trail cameras in the township parks to help with recent vandalism problems. She will be doing further research on costs and types of cameras.
