Route 13 and Turnpike
PennDOT and Turnpike Engineers met with the Township. They are aware of the congestion due to the construction and have already been working on corrective actions. The issues are mainly from signal timing and single through lanes. The corrective actions they are working for implementation are adjusting the timing of the signal, adding a temporary video detection system, installing GPS clocks for Green Lane and Turnpike signal coordination, redesigning for additional though lane for SB Route 13 and adding green arrow for right turn from SB Route 13. The removal of the bridge deck has begun, then removal of temporary signal C posts, re-do lanes adding the through SB lane and adjust timing for turn lanes.
