The entrance to Randy Run (above), at Buchert Road and Gresh Drive
SANATOGA PA – Vehicle speeding concerns voiced by residents of the Randy Run housing community, located across the street from the entrance to Lower Pottsgrove Elementary School on Buchert Road, have been heard by the Lower Pottsgrove Police Department. It’s in the process of conducting traffic studies there along Gresh, Randy and Doris drives.
Department Sgt. Wil James, who on Tuesday (Sept. 8, 2015) delivered the monthly report of Chief Michael Foltz to the township Board of Commissioners in Foltz’s absence, said the studies began during mid-August and were not yet complete. There are no speed limit signs posted on any of the three roads, he noted.
Randy Run is a neighborhood of detached, single-family homes built during a 30-year period between 1950 and 1980, according to the Living Places website. The community is populated by many families with young children who attend Pottsgrove School District buildings.
Depending on the studies’ results, James said, the department may recommend to commissioners that speed limits be posted there. No time frame for a decision was announced. The sergeant also noted a request had been made to post additional “Children At Play” signs along the roads. They may be a future issue for commissioners to consider, he said.
