Township Traffic Initiatives

Trucks 
Last March, the Bridgeton Township Supervisors initiated an effort to address the growing problem with truck traffic in Bridgeton Township. Many residents contacted Representative Labs, Senator Mensch and PennDot expressing their concern regarding  the unacceptable volume of trucks passing through Bridgeton Township. The Bridgeton Township Supervisors met with Representative Labs who continues to support  our requests to PennDot. Following are the actions taken to address this problem

1. Post restriction signs for trucks with longer than 45′ trailers in accordance with PennDot requirements in New Jersey and on River Road and Bridgeton Hill Roads.

2. Post truck restriction signs on the PA side of the Milford Bridge prohibiting a right turn on to River Road. 
3. Enforce the truck restrictions by the PA State Police.

4. Send letters to local trucking companies advising them of the restrictions implemented by PennDot and subsequent enforcement patrols to be conducted by the PA State Police.


Speeding and noise
Increasing complaints of the volume of trucks traffic, speeding and noise have moved the township to form a Traffic Advisory Committee to advise the township on calming traffic strategies to improve safety on our roads. The posted speed limits on both River Road and Bridgeton Hill Roads is constantly being exceeded by 20MPH+  To help reduce speeding, the township is implementing the following:


1. Put into service 3 speed advisory signs on a rotating basis throughout the township to remind drivers of the posted speed limits.

2. Increase monitoring and enforcement patrols by the PA State Police at locations throughout the township during peak speeding periods.

3. Evaluate additional traffic calming measures in the township in accordance with the PennDot Traffic Calming Handbook.


If there are any questions or concerns, the committee can be contacted at: traffic@bridgetontwp.org.
