The Public Works Department maintains traffic and street signs as well as street markings such as lane markers, caution and stop stencils, parking lots, and cross walks. Traffic sign vandalism is costly to the taxpayer because replacement is labor intensive and signs are expensive. If you are aware of vandalism, please report it to the Township Police Department at 724-695-1300.
The Federal Government published the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices. This manual has been adopted by PADOT as the guide to all traffic control signs and devices. Within this manual are new, brighter, reflective standards for traffic signs and street name signs. Over the next few years you will see newer, brighter signs installed throughout the township. To cut costs, Public Works is applying new sign faces to existing aluminum sign backs, saving over 50% of the cost of installing all new signs.
