Revamped Thorn Run Intersection Near Completion

New traffic lights will soon turn on in the intersection.

Moon officials say new traffic signaling will soon be turned on at the intersection of Thorn Run and Beaver Grade roads. 

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is expected to conclude work on the next week, said Moon Township Engineer Malcolm Petroccia.

Crews are installing left-turn-only and pedestrian phases to existing traffic lighting in the intersection. New sidewalks and ramps that comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act have also been installed in the area.

If PennDOT signs off on the work next week, the intersection will be monitored for a 30-day review period.

"They'll be watching the timing of the traffic signaling in the intersection, just to see if it runs smoothly," Petroccia said.

Petroccia said the new signaling will prevent cars from backing up down Beaver Grade Road, but through-traffic in the intersection will be slightly delayed to accomodate the new turning lane.

The project was funded through a $12,000 PennDOT grant awarded to the township earlier this year.
