  • Consultant To Study Key Rock Road Speeding Issue

    The Police Commission plans to have an engineering firm review traffic flow on Key Rock Road to determine the best measures to control speeding on the northern section of that mile-long north-south connector road.

    Key Rock Road links Sugar Street (State Route 302) to the intersection of Hattertown Road and Poverty Hollow Road.

  • Key Rock Road Speed Issue Under Review

    Police officials plan to research whether adding more “speed tables” to the northern section of Key Rock Road would solve a motorist speeding problem there.

    That speeding occurs when westbound drivers on Sugar Street (Route 302), which is a thoroughfare with a 40-mph speed limit, turn left and travel onto southbound Key Rock Road and are moving at speeds faster than Key Rock Road’s posted 20-mph speed limit.

  • Police Commission Complimented For Queen Street Safety Effort

    Robert Geckle of 35 Queen Street attended the September 3 Police Commission meeting to thank the agency for addressing traffic speed concerns on the road which links Church Hill Road to Mile Hill Road. Since late last year, the town has installed five permanent speed tables on the southern section of Queen Street to hold down traffic speeds. 

  • A Huge Waste Of Taxpayer Money

    To the Editor:

    Queen Street + Speed Bumps = huge waste of taxpayer money.

    The town should take the same approach to Queen Street that they have taken for the road that we live on, which hasn’t cost the town a penny. The speed limit on our road is 15 mph and no one breaks it. Here’s the trick — our road hasn’t been resurfaced in 30 years. Its full of cracks and potholes, the curbs are falling apart. It is impossible to go over 15 mph without ruining your car’s suspension.
