Township Lowering Industrial Highway Speed

SANATOGA PA – After almost a year of study, Lower Pottsgrove police have concluded it would be safest to reduce the speed limit along the entire length of Industrial Highway on the township’s south side, and the Board of Commissioners agrees.

Commissioners on Monday (Oct. 5, 2015) unanimously approved publishing an advertisement to advise the public that the posted speed limit on Industrial, between Armand Hammer Boulevard and Moser Road, will be reduced to 35 mph. The new limit would take effect when approved at a future board meeting, and once roadside signs are properly posted.

Police Chief Michael Foltz delivered his department’s completed traffic study to board members. It notes that Industrial can be particularly busy at times with traffic exiting from U.S. Route 422 at Armand Hammer; with visitors who use hotel lodging there, and with scheduled activities at the 422 Sportsplex at its corner with Moser Road.

From just beyond the Moser intersection and continuing west, the highway lies within the borough of Pottstown. The board’s determination affects only the portion within the township.
