Let’s Make the Browns Hill Rd / 191 Intersection Safe
The petition will be sent to Lewis Morton of PennDOT for a response.
Those of us traveling Route 191 (Paradise Valley Rd), and the many residents of the Timber Hill Community within Paradise and Price Townships, are requesting consideration and prompt action from PennDOT to minimize the risk of vehicular accidents and injuries at this potentially dangerous intersection. The upcoming bridge/tunnel project on Route 191 in Stroud Twp will potentially exacerbate the risks as drivers will impatiently add significant travel time as they navigate the area roads. Let’s be proactive.
The following are proposed solutions:
1) Install a series of signs ahead of the intersection, not just the type that is currently in place, with the closest sign a blinking sign that will alert drivers to the intersection.
2) Lower the speed limit in both directions beginning 1/4 mile out to 35 mph.
3) Install a “ Reduce speed dangerous intersection” sign.
4) Install rumble strips.
Any or all of these proposals are ways to improve the current situation. The current single sign is inadequate and too close in distance to the intersection to provide drivers with adequate warning to the intersection.
We, the undersigned call on PennDOT to take action to insure the safety of all drivers traveling through the area.
