More speed controls coming in Northampton County’s Hanover Township
Two more radar speed signs — the electronic ones that show how fast you’re driving compared to how fast you should be driving — soon will be erected in Hanover Township, Northampton County.
The signs will be put in areas where residents have complained about excess speed, said township manager John “Jay” Finnigan.
One will be installed along Jaindl Boulevard and the other will be on Jacksonville Road.
Finnigan explained the Jacksonsville Road sign will installed on the northbound side of the road near Bridle Path Road, south of the Route 22 bridge.
The Jaindl Boulevard sign will be on the eastbound side of that road, near the Traditions of Hanover development. The manager put the price tag for the two signs at $40,000, which includes engineering.
“This is being funded with grants received through the state gaming authority,” said Finnigan.
“If we continue to get grants, there are other locations where we would like to put them.” Hanover already has six stationary radar speed signs, four of them on Jacksonville Road.
Two of those four are at Hanover Elementary School at 3890 Jacksonville Road. One is on Stoke Park Road and another is on Crawford Drive.
