Mahoning Township Police will target speeders on Middle, Lower streets

DANVILLE — MAHONING TWP. — Speeders will be targeted on Middle and Lower streets, Mahoning Township Supervisors warned during their meeting Monday.

New 25 miles per hour signs will be posted along those streets as well.

“This is what the speed limit is there, and apparently we have a lot of people who are not paying attention to that,” said Christine DeLong, board chairwoman.

Police will monitor Middle and Lower streets more frequently due to an increased number of complaints from residents along the road of speeding motorists, said vice chair Wayne Myers.

The increase has occurred since changes were created along Route 54, which rerouted more traffic along Sidler Hill, Myers said.

While there have not yet been accidents, the vehicles are going “faster than they should be,” he said.

The number of speeding incidents has been increasing over time, DeLong added.
