PLAINS TWP. — The township Board of Commissioners on Thursday night discussed several measures for increased traffic safety.

Traffic studies have been requested to have a sign placed at the corner of South Main and Farrell streets restricting truck traffic and to have a stop sign placed at the intersection of Juniper Drive and Cook Street.

In response to speeding complaints on Cleveland Street in the Irishtown section, township officials announced their intention to post a 35 mph speed limit sign. A study may also be requested to possibly reduce the speed at some point in the future.

It was also announced that portions of Oak Street will be partially closed from Friday, Oct. 11 through Sunday, Oct. 13 for unanticipated road repairs.

The township also announced intentions to offer $600 to acquire the property 1-3 Center St. from the Luzerne County Tax Depository. The property currently contains an abandoned condemned house.

The township has no immediate plans for the Hudson section corner property beyond demolition and possible eventual sale.

The next regular board meeting will be Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m.
