Cheltenham Township conducting study for removal of traffic signal

Cheltenham Township officials announced that a study for the removal of the traffic signal at Montgomery/Mill/Surrey/Windsor roads will take place from March 11 to June 10.

From their announcement:

Cheltenham Township has been working with its Traffic Engineers and PennDOT to develop a safer way to control traffic at this intersection. Preliminary work has been going on for over twelve months. There have been several versions of the plan that were reviewed, and based on traffic counts at the location, the data led to replacing the traffic signal with “STOP” signs and additional lane re-alignment and pavement markings.

Starting the week of March 11, 2024 the traffic signal will be placed in an all red flash pattern and stop signs will be in place. There will also be signage stating that the signal is under study for removal. This will last for approximately 30 days.

After the 30 days, the traffic signals will be covered for another 90 days. The traffic will be monitored throughout this time for the effectiveness of the stop signs. A final recommendation will be made to the Board of Commissioners after the data has been reviewed.

If you have any questions or comments you can reach out to Traffic and Streetlight Superintendent Joe Stuckert at or 215-635-4600 ext.346.
