COLUMBUS TOWNSHIP — The speed limit on a Columbus Township road — which is likely to receive heavy traffic from a new wastewater injection project — has been lowered to 45 mph.

Columbus Township supervisors announced they received a letter from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation confirming that new speed limit signs will soon be placed on Cornish Hill Road, also known as state Route 4004.

From the New York state line to the Bear Lake Borough line, Cornish Hill Road was previously posted at 55 mph.

However, a resident who lives on the road recently expressed concern that the stretch might not be capable of handling that speed from large semi trucks that are expected to be moving through the area six days a week.
