Municipality Responsibilities


While we maintain the physical structure of our roads, certain items are the responsibility of others. Traffic signals are the responsibility of the municipality. Concerns about signal timing, signs, and pavement markings at signalized intersections should be directed to the township or borough where the intersection is located.

Certain types of signs also fall under municipal jurisdiction. Local road crews maintain the following signs:
  • Road name signs
  • Speed limit signs
  • Stop signs

Dead Animals


The Pennsylvania Game Commission will remove large animal carcasses from the roadside. Contact the Southeast Regional Office at 610-926-3136.

Mailboxes


Mailboxes must be installed outside the right of way of the road. Although we exercise caution when plowing snow, we cannot be responsible for damage to mailboxes that are improperly located
