Is the three-way stop at the intersection of Claremont and South Middlesex roads permanent?
Yes, the change to a three-way stop at the intersection of Claremont and South Middlesex roads in Middlesex Township is a permanent change.
Township supervisors approved an ordinance in July authorizing the change, and by late August, two more stop signs were installed at the intersection.
Township Manager Eileen Gault told The Sentinel in September the move was in response to residents’ concerns about safety at the intersection. Prior to the change, only one stop sign controlled traffic turning on to South Middlesex Road from Claremont Road.
Traffic from all directions is now required to stop.
“The main issue is the visibility when you are making a left turn onto South Middlesex from Claremont,” Gault told The Sentinel.
When will construction be completed on South Sporting Hill Road in Hampden Township?
In late September, Pennsylvania American Water began a large scale project on South Sporting Hill Road in Hampden Township to update the water infrastructure.
The $1.2 million water main replacement was split into phases to allow for the installation of nearly 4,300 feet of new 12-inch ductile pipe along Sporting Hill Road between Carlisle Pike and East Trindle Road.
The upgrade is meant to improve service reliability and replace piping that dates back to the 1950s.
Final paving is slated to be completed in May.
