Improvements to traffic flow on Business Rt. 22 in Monroeville and Murrysville will be the focus of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation this year. According to Jim Morrison, chief administrator for Murrysville, PennDOT has approved $2 million for vehicle detection and traffic signal equipment to be installed in the Rt. 22 corridor.
Mr. Morrison said the new equipment will be installed at nineteen intersections on Rt. 22 between the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Monroeville and the cloverleaf at Salem Township.
In a related matter, council rescinded authorization for the purchase of radar equipment to replace traffic signal equipment at the intersection of School Rd and Rt. 22 which had been damaged in the winter. In February, council agreed to install the radar equipment as a pilot program, unsure if the PennDOT project was to be funded.
