Jenkintown Public Works/Public Safety Committee Meetings

As usual, Chief DiValentino provides the most interesting content in these meetings. During an extended discussion about the traffic on Walnut at Rodman, the Chief revealed that 29,000 cars pass by on a five-day basis. Despite the potential hazard at that intersection, most of the accidents along that stretch of Walnut take place at the four-way stop at Walnut and Hillside due to people running the signs.

Speeds on that stretch run as high as 47 MPH with the median at 26 MPH. Make sure you look both ways before crossing!

Also, we can all look forward to a year of ripped up roads and construction thanks to PECO, Aqua, and the Borough’s ongoing paving juggernaught.
