This plan has not yet been approved by the Board of Supervisors. The next Board public meeting is on October 12, 2022. The main topic for discussion is the 2023 budget, which includes roadwork expenses.
Newtown Township, with the approval of PennDOT, has placed "NO TURN ON RED" signage at the intersection of Durham Road / Sycamore Street and Washington Crossing Road / Durham Road.
According to the September 9, 2022, Engineer’s Report, RVE (township engineers) reviewed a request for additional signage at the above-mentioned intersection. Proposed improvements: Addition of two signs including: R1-5L/R 'Yield Here to Pedestrian with Left or Right Arrow' sign, 36" x 36" and R10-6AL/R 'Stop Here on Red with Left or Right Arrow' sign, 24" x 30".
I have not seen any of these proposed signs that RVE mentioned in its report.
Meanwhile, the “No Turn on Red” sign is pretty far back on Durham Rd and it is obvious that many drivers are not seeing it and making right-hand turns on red at the intersection.
The Board of Supervisors (BOS) did not have an opportunity to approve this. In the past, we've approved other pedestrian safety measures for N Sycamore St (see below). I’m sure we will be hearing from residents/drivers who regularly make this turn on red.
In any case, I am sure that this is being done to improve pedestrian safety, which has been an issue on North Sycamore Street (read for example, "Supervisors Act To Improve Pedestrian Safety!"). Regardless, drivers must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk, even when making a legal right-hand turn onto N Sycamore.
