Linglestown Gazette: Nyes Road to get long-awaited traffic light

Nyes Road to get long-awaited traffic light

Plans are in the works to address the notorious traffic bottleneck at Nyes Road and Locust Lane. If all goes as planned, a traffic light could be installed at the intersection sometime over the next two years.

PennDOT is working with Lower Paxton Twp. on a project to install the light and widen a two-mile stretch of Nyes Road, from N. Highland Drive to Willoughby Road, according to PennDOT spokesman Greg Penny.

At the traffic signal, the northbound lane of Nyes Road will be widened to allow motorists to make left-hand turns onto Locust Lane.

Currently, Lower Paxton Twp. is awaiting approval of an environmental report by state and federal highway agencies. If it is approved, the township’s engineering firm for the project, Buchart Horn, Inc. of York, can begin work on the project’s final design.

Construction of the estimated $7.5 million project is tentatively expected to start late spring or early summer next year and end sometime in 2010, said Penny.
