Like many other municipalities, Glen Rock has long had a traffic problem exacerbated by narrow streets and steep hills. We have started a traffic calming project to try to mitigate some of the issues as best we can with the space and resources available to the Borough. We have consulted with several agencies and met on site with a traffic engineer provided through a PennDOT program. Our next step is a Borough traffic calming policy, currently under development, which will provide a long range plan for our traffic issues. We will continue to work on this important issue.
We have also met with another PennDOT engineer regarding the truck restriction signage on Church St. New signs should be in place by the end of April 2018. We hope the new signs will deter more trucks from using Church St as a through street.
