Traffic lights will be installed at the Pine-Richland High School entrance and a short distance up the road at the Babcock Boulevard-Warrendale Road intersection.
A $193,000 bill for the addition of traffic lights near Pine-Richland High School came as a bit of a surprise to Pine Township's Board of Supervisors. Vice Chairman Philip Henry, the liaison with Pine-Richland School District, told the supervisors Monday night that he had met with school district representatives and they thought the township had set aside money for the project. Through a series of miscommunications, the school district thought that should be an obligation of the township," Chairman Michael Dennehy added. Pine-Richland School District will pay the bulk of the $1.1 million cost of the project. In January, the school board granted the contract to low bidder Lane Construction. The traffic signals will be added at the PRHS …
