Eldred lowers speed limit on township roads

Eldred Township roadmaster Keith Kuehner has been busy the past few months compiling road studies and suggesting new speed limits for some of the township roads.

The supervisors have been listening to many of the residents who say the speed limits set decades ago don’t reflect the amount of travel the roads receive today.

The response has been to set a schedule which would allow Kuehner to look at roads that are brought to the supervisor’s attention to determine if the current speed limit is safe, or needs to be adjusted.

Kuehner reviewed the findings of his study for the supervisors and made the following suggested changes from the 55 mph speed limit.

Turkey Hill Road — speed limit 35 mph

Kuehner Road — speed limit 40 mph

Borger Road — speed limit from Silver Springs Boulevard to Church Road, 40 mph.

Church Road to Fiddletown Road, 25 mph.

Kunkletown Road to Grove Road — speed limit 25 mph.

Kuehner is still working on parts of Church Road.

The supervisors agreed to advertise an ordinance revising the speed limits. A public meeting will be held before the board’s meeting in December.

The supervisors also agreed to advertise the 2018 municipal budget which will be approved in December.
