Councilman Expresses Concern About Intersection
Lower Saucon Township Councilman Ron Horiszny asked Aug. 15 if anything can be done to help slow down motorists at the intersection of Black River and Bingen roads.
Safety at a well-traveled 'T-intersection' in Lower Saucon Township is concerning to a township councilman.
At council's Aug. 15 meeting, Ron Horiszny said the intersection of Black River and Bingen roads has been the scene of several accidents recently.
Horiszny said "excessive speeds" are related to some of the problems at the intersection, where eastbound motorists on Black River Road are required to stop and yield to north- or southbound motorists on Bingen Road.
Police also reported in May that an Upper Saucon motorist would be cited for a stop sign violation for an accident she allegedly caused as she turned from Black River Road onto Bingen.
Police said that accident occurred when Patricia Graf proceeded forward to turn left and struck a vehicle that was turning from Bingen onto Black River.
Horiszny asked if the township's public works department could take a look at the intersection to determine if anything can be done to help make it safer.
