A traffic study evaluating ways to reduce the traffic impact from a planned development in Upper St. Clair on access roads in Bridgeville is nearing completion, but Bridgeville borough council hasn't reviewed the results yet, said Bridgeville manager Lori Collins at Monday night's council meeting.
The borough commissioned the traffic calming evaluation study from HRG Inc. in response to concerns voiced by residents of Cook School Road and Main Street. Those roads are being designated as access roads to the 136-home development planned for the site of the Bedner Farm in Upper St. Clair. Pesavento Drive and Ridge Road in the same neighborhood were also included in the study.
Residents say their narrow residential streets can't handle the increased traffic that will be generated by the development.
"There are lot of older people and young children in the neighborhood, but no sidewalks," said Main Street resident Cee Cee McNulty, who added that the development will put the safety of people in her neighborhood at risk.
"We are not against development," she said, but she suggested that the developer build his own road to the project.
"Build your development, but build your own roads. Don't use our streets," she said.
