**PENNDOT MEETING NOTICE**
A public meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. regarding the “No Left Turn” restriction eastbound on 910 onto Highpoint Drive.
The meeting is scheduled at the Marshall Township Municipal Building.
Todd Kravits, District Engineer and Kathryn Power, District Safety Engineer will be in attendance.
POSTING OF ‘NO LEFT TURN’ RESTRICTION
ROUTE 910 ONTO HIGHPOINT DRIVE
On Monday, March 30, 2015, PennDOT crews installed signage prohibiting the left turn movement from Eastbound Route 910 (Wexford Bayne Road) onto Highpoint Drive.
This posting is the result of an ‘engineering and traffic study’ conducted by PennDOT which identified a “crash pattern associated” with the left turn movement. Northern Regional Police Department statistics substantiate this claim, with data reporting 26 accidents for the period of January 1, 2012 through October 1, 2014.
PennDOT’s correspondence to the Township on this matter recognizes the inconvenience to Highpoint residents, but points out “…we feel that the safety benefit of implementing the left turn restriction is essential. The restriction is necessary not only for the safety of the general public driving on S.R. 910, but especially for the safety of the Highpoint Development residents.”
In the interest of public safety, Marshall Township supports this PennDOT decision and asks for your cooperation in adhering to the posted restrictions.

Ecycling Recycling (An Electronic Recycling Center)
Beginning Jan. 24, 2013, a disposal ban on covered devices went into effect in Pennsylvania. From this point forward, no person may dispose of a covered device, or any of its components, with their municipal solid waste. These devices and their components must be properly recycled and may not be taken to, nor accepted by, landfills or other solid waste disposal facilities for disposal. However, non-hazardous residuals of covered devices that are produced during the recycling of those devices are excluded from the disposal ban.
Marshall Township takes much pride in its rural atmosphere yet it is situated a short 20-minute drive north of Pittsburgh’s business and cultural centers via I79/279. A Township of the Second Class, Marshall is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors. Approximately 14 square miles in size, it is located in the northwest corner of Allegheny County – thus the “Tops In Allegheny County” logo.
Marshall is bordered by Cranberry Township, Butler County to the North, Franklin Park Borough to the South, Pine Township to the East and Economy Borough, Beaver County to the West, and borders Bradford Woods Borough on three sides. Incorporated June 3, 1863, it was named for Thomas Mercer Marshall, a famous trial lawyer who practiced law in Allegheny County.
Marshall is included in the North Allegheny School District and is a member of the Northern Regional Police Department. All residents have free access to the Northland Public Library, and public transportation to Pittsburgh is available from several locations including a newly constructed Port Authority Park’n Ride.
Two Indian trails, a meteorite, oil wells and the Harmony Shortline are only a small part of our rich and colorful history History of Marshall.
