Notice: Two New Stop Signs Proposed in Jefferson Township

The Township Supervisors are looking for comments on a proposal for two new stop signs. If you have any comments or suggestions on these proposals, please send them to the Township email (JeffersonTwp_DauphinCounty@comcast.net, leave a message on Township phone (717-362-2313) or provide input at a meeting.

Proposal #1: Install a "Stop except Right Turn" sign on Carsonville Road (coming from the Hotel toward Back Road) at the intersection with Middle Road. Only vehicles turning onto Middle Road from Carsonville Road would have to stop; others would keep moving. The reason for this proposal is that the sharp downhill corner on Carsonville Road at that intersection makes the turn onto Middle Road dangerous because it is hard to see oncoming traffic. Stopping before turning would improve safety by requiring more time to look for and be seen by oncoming traffic. Other safety measures such as road markings and warning signs are also being considered.

Proposal #2: Install a stop sign heading west on Back Road at the intersection with White Oak Road. Again the reason for this proposal is safety. When turning onto Back Road from White Oak Road it is difficult to see if any traffic is coming from the left. With a stop sign that traffic would have to stop, which would reduce the danger of a collision.



The Jefferson Township Supervisors are pleased to provide this website where residents, businesses and visitors of Jefferson Township can visit to find valuable information.
