New Traffic Light Coming to Emlen Street (Update: It's Not Coming)
The light will be placed at Emlen and West Mt. Airy Avenue.
Update, May 17, 1:30 p.m. It turns out the traffic light isn't coming here after all. You can read this story to learn more.
The original post, which tells a story that's no longer true, is below.
A new traffic light will soon come to Emlen Street at West Mt. Airy Avenue.
A West Mt. Airy Neighbors newsletter made the announcement last week.
Cars used to speed down Emlen Street before the stop sign was in place. Now, the traffic light is intended to deter them from doing so even more.
WMAN Vice President for Community Affairs Michelle Brown-Nevers succeeded in getting a traffic engineering study done for the site.
It was because of that study that the light will be installed.
