PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” This may not be on your Christmas list, but Punxsutawney is going to receive new traffic signals courtesy of PennDOT District 10 throughout the downtown area.
Punxsutawney Borough Manager Ben White said that the traffic signal upgrade is a PennDOT project.
â€śEach of the intersections along Mahoning Street â€” including Hampton Avenue, Jefferson, Findley and Gilpin streets â€” will receive new signals, signal posts and mast arms,â€ť White said, adding that Hampton is currently the only intersection that has mast arms that support the traffic signals.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” The Route 310/119 intersection improvement project continued to be a big topic of discussion at Thursdayâ€™s Route 119 Improvement Committee meeting.
Mark Rozich, PennDOT District 10 highway design engineer, said that the purchase of the brown house located at the intersection â€” a house that the committee was planning to purchase for demolition â€” has not been completed yet.
