Traffic Advisories

Traffic Counting - The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission will be collects travel volume information in Lower Providence Township. This involves DVRPC staff laying a rubber tube across roadway for approximately 48 hours (to gather daily traffic volumes) or manually recording traffic from a vehicle parked near an intersection (to gather turning movement information).  These efforts will not interfere with normal traffic operations. Traffic counting information is available on the DVRPC website (www.dvrpc.org).site at Products and Services | Traffic Counts from the Resources menu. 

 
Sign Regulation Information

Political signs are most directly regulated by state authorities. The posting of all signs on utility poles is prohibited by state legislation and by the utility companies. Lower Providence Township Ordinance §143-139 prohibits signs affixed to trees, fences, utility poles or upon rocks or other natural features. All freestanding signs shall be placed outside of the ultimate right of way of any public street and not on any governmental or school property. Under Township Ordinance 143-139.B(3), no sign shall be placed in such a position as to create traffic hazards by obscuring sight triangles or by causing confusion with official street signs due to color or location.

While recent case law largely limits local enforcement of the displaying of political signs, the Township requests that political candidates and their staff members abide by the standards described above.
