PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsutawney Borough Council said that once the sign prohibiting truck traffic is posted on Graffius Avenue and Jenks Avenue during the bridge reconstruction on Route 119 in Elk Run, Punxsutawney Borough Police will increase their patrols to enforce the types of traffic that are permitted on borough streets.

Eric Story, council member, asked if council could place a temporary stop sign at intersection of Jenks and Park Avenue.

"I think with it being a residential area, something needs to be done to slow traffic down," Story said, adding that perhaps yield signs could be placed on that street.
