People in York County are fighting to get a traffic signal back. They say its absence is creating a safety issue in and around their neighborhood. The intersection of Route 124 and Chambers Road had a traffic signal but in January it was removed for a construction project to widen the road.
More than 200 people packed a York Township Board of Commissioners meeting to voice their concerns.
“Removing the light is not only impacting our safety as we enter and exit our neighborhood it’s impacting the safety inside our neighborhood,” says Jennifer Gaydos of York Township
Township Commissioners said Tuesday during the meeting that they stand behind residents and if they could put the light back in they would. But that PennDOT told them they wouldn’t replace the light.
FOX43 spoke with a PennDOT spokesperson who says they do not plan on putting a new signal back in the intersection. They said the signal was only put there temporarily.
