Interactive Warning System Design
Penn Energy Resources, New Sewickley Township, Beaver County, PA
Due to an uncorrectable sight distance issue and Township concerns about safety, Stahl Sheaffer was tasked with developing a plan to improve the intersection of SR 68 and SR 1025 Zeigler Road/Steinbach Road to accommodate the construction of a compressor station and subsequent truck traffic.
Stahl Sheaffer developed an interactive warning sign system to alert motorists on SR 68 approaching the intersection of either traffic entering the roadway from the side streets or of traffic stopped on SR 68 waiting to make a left turn. Stahl Sheaffer worked with PennDOT and the Township on the approval of the project and held on-site meetings with the Township and surrounding residents to review the system. The system received approval and was implemented in Spring 2016.
