Lower Saucon Township Council voted Sept. 5 to request permission from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to install a school bus stop sign on Route 412 near Apples Church Road.
Township manager Jack Cahalan said the state agency will conduct a study to determine if the sign is warranted.
Route 412--which is also known as Leithsville Road in that part of the township--is a state road.
Cahalan told council that a similar request involving a school bus stop near Weavers Lane and Route 412 was made last year.
The motion to send a letter requesting the study was approved 3-0, with council members Priscilla deLeon and Ron Horiszny absent.
