Bullskin resident airs concerns
Bear Rocks resident Mike Koliscak is concerned about the community's lost identity.
"After going through the Three Mile Hill renovations, we lost the Bear Rocks Community sign and now we just have the Snow Shoe Road sign," Koliscak told Bullskin Township supervisors this week.
He questioned if signage identifying the Bear Rocks Community installed.
Koliscak told supervisors since the Three Mile Hill project was completed, high-speed traffic has predominated the left passing lane.
"At Laurel Glass there's a sign that says the left lane ends and to bear right, but no one seems to notice it when they're trying to beat another vehicle," Koliscak said. "The barrier ends once that lane ends, but there needs to be some kind of rumble strip put in or something that will make the cars get over when they're suppose to."
Koliscak discussed snow that collects at the entrance of Snow Shoe Road after PennDOT plows Three Mile Hill.
"Since the construction project the entrance of Snow Show Road has been made steeper and it's a problem getting out after PennDOT plows," he said.
Supervisor Scott Keefer said supervisors usually have it cleaned by about 5:15 a.m. Unfortunately for Koliscak, he leaves for work before then.
Koliscak discussed paving on his road. He said he has lived in Bear Rocks for 15 years and the road he lives on has been paved just twice, but never milled down.
"The road just keeps getting higher and I've even had to raise my mailbox," he said.
Keefer said there was never a proper base put down.
"Paving over the asphalt makes the road stronger," he said.
