Marsico Continues to Push for Speed Limit Study
HARRISBURG—Rep. Ron Marsico (R-Lower Paxton) continues to support Lower Paxton Township’s application to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to have a traffic study conducted on whether or not to lower the speed limit through the Village of Linglestown from 35 mph to 25 mph.
“Following the completion of the Linglestown Road restoration project, my office has received numerous complaints about the current speed limit. It has been a year since this project was completed, and I believe that the roundabouts are doing their job,” said Marsico. “Traffic congestion has decreased and motorists must slow down as they navigate the roundabouts. However, motorists continue to travel too fast along the portion of Linglestown Road between the roundabouts.”
This past weekend, Marsico took part in the Linglestown Square fall festival. During this event many motorists were witnessed going above the posted speed limit of 35 mph, which is extremely dangerous and detracts from the point of the entire restoration project. Last year’s improvements were meant to maintain the beautiful and historic charm of Linglestown while promoting a safe community.
“I have submitted a second request to PennDOT for a traffic study to be conducted to decrease the speed limit through Linglestown from 35 mph to 25 mph. Needless to say, I strongly support Lower Paxton Township’s application for this study,” said Marsico. “We have all helped to create a beautiful and vibrant community, and it is our responsibility to ensure our residents safety.”
