Taylor Tables Closure of Papermill Road


The Taylor Township supervisors’ May 6 meeting opened with a resident who is concerned about the township’s plan to vacate Papermill Road.

He asked who would maintain and plow the road. Papermill Road has three residents, two private homes and the Roaring Spring Borough Sewer Plant.

Taylor solicitor David Pertile explained that the road would remain as is and become a private drive. The owners of property accessed by this road would be responsible for plowing and upkeep. The township affirmed that they do not plow the road now, that Roaring Spring Borough has been plowing as they go to the plant.

The board tabled the vote on closure of the road until they have talked to the PA Utility Commission concerning the railroad tracks that run across Papermill Road.

Supervisors awarded the bid for paving of a stretch of Bloomfield Road to New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co. Inc. NES&L was the only bid for this job.

They also awarded a bid for seal coating to Suit-Kote of Cortland, New York, also the only bid for this job.

The township will be seal coating the following this summer: Stonerook Road, Halter Creek Road, Shawnee Road, England Road, Thompson Road, Burkettown Road and Keith Street.

The board voted to implement new speed limits on Frederick Road. A Safe Running Speed Study showed that the speed should be reduced to 35 mph, reducing to 25 mph from Nicodemus Street to State Route 164.

Cross Cove Road,

Route 36 Intersection

Township Engineer Greg Geishauser reported that the engineer who studied the intersection of Cross Cove Road and Woodbury Pike (State Route 36) said that the fatalities and accidents have not reached the number that PennDOT would need to install a stop light at that intersection. PennDOT did recommend various solutions to announce the upcoming intersection to try and slow traffic through that area. The board will determine the best option to move forward with making the intersection safer for drivers.

The next meeting of the Taylor Township supervisors will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 3.
