Resident: 4-way stop necessary at Mulberry and Ferry

DANVILLE — Borough council members discussed the possibility of a four-way stop intersection and unused utility poles Tuesday night.

Councilman Tom Wickham reported Joe Gallo, of Pine Street, asked him about a four-way stop at Ferry and Lower Mulberry streets which is now a two-way stop intersection.

Danville Police Chief Eric Gill said discussions had been held last year about a four-way stop sign there.

It could jam up traffic going slower, he said.

If a study were done of the area, he said the number of accidents would need to be considered, the proximity of the school bus stop, angles and sight distance.

The borough council would have to request a study be conducted, he said.

Council President Scott Richardson referred the request to the streets committee. Wickham said Gallo also told him about “poles to nowhere” near Pine Street Lutheran Church.

Wickham said they are empty poles and he didn’t know who owned them.

Public Works Director John Hack said they don’t belong to the borough and could be owned by PPL or the phone company. Hack said he would check out the poles.
