The public will have a chance to learn about plans for improving the intersection of routes 26 and 45 at a meeting Monday.

The intersection of state routes 26 and 45 near Pine Grove Mills has been the site of enough crashes that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has been studying what can be done to improve it.

Project Manager Leigh Woolridge said PennDOT has narrowed it down to three options. Two of those include installing a traffic light. The other would mean a two-lane roundabout.

“We want to get some feedback from Ferguson Township and the residents of Ferguson Township and also commuters through that intersection, so we’re going to set up a plan display giving them background and show them the three alternatives we’re considering right now and hear everybody’s concerns about those,” Woolridge said.

Information on those options will be on display from 6 to 7 Monday night at the Ferguson Township Building. PennDOT representatives will be on hand to answer questions and make a presentation during the township meeting.
