Lower Merion Township's commissioners changed direction Wednesday night on the issue of how to reconfigure the intersection of Wynnewood Avenue and Wynnewood Road, a decision that puts them at odds with the borough of Narberth's preferred course.
Eight of 12 present members at the Board of Commissioners meeting voted against pursuing a traffic-circle option (rather than a traffic signal) at the curved three-way intersection, which is currently controlled only by a stop sign for southbound Wynnewood Avenue traffic coming under the railroad tracks.
At a Sept. 3 meeting, only 6 of 13 present members had opposed the traffic-circle plan, meaning it advanced with a slim majority.
In July, Narberth's council voted in favor of a traffic circle. The intersection lies at a boundary between the borough and township, so any change in its configuration may require agreement between their government bodies.
How optimistic/pessimistic are you that the township and borough will come to terms? What's the best solution for the Wynnewood/Wynnewood intersection? Is there a more pressing need to reconfigure other intersections around the township or borough? Please tell us in the comments section below.
