Resident voices concern over traffic lights

PUNXSUTAWNEY — A Punxsutawney resident recently shared his concerns with Punxsutawney Borough Council about PennDOT's new downtown traffic light system.

Joe Ferrara, of Church Street, expressed concern about cones set up in the middle of the sidewalk at every intersection, as well as two-inch conduit protruding about 18 inches above the sidewalk surface with wires.
Ferrara said that he was told by now-former council member Roger Steele that there would be control cabinets installed on the sidewalk.
