North Huntingdon to remove stop signs in Lincoln Hills

Wednesday, July 9, 2014, 9:01 p.m.

North Huntingdon commissioners have given the go-ahead to start the process to remove two of three stop signs at the three-way intersection of Oxford Court and Westminster Drive in the Lincoln Hills neighborhood.

The request to remove the signs was made by a resident living near the intersection, township Manager John Shepherd said at last month's commissioners meeting.

“This is a little different because people are usually asking us to us to put them in, but this resident wants us to remove them because they do not meet the criteria for such an installation,” Shepherd said.

A police officer who was directed to investigate whether the signs are warranted determined that they are not necessary, Shepherd said.

“It's possible that someone in the past perhaps saw things differently, but the officer could not find any criteria that would have warranted the installation of the signs,” said Shepherd, adding that the township solicitor agreed with the officer's findings.

The sign at the end of Westminster Drive will remain to regulate traffic at the three-way intersection, Shepherd said.
