Holy Family contract

Emsworth Borough has entered into a contract with Holy Family Institute concerning the crosswalk across Ohio River Boulevard.

At the March council meeting, a motion was unanimously passed in which the borough accepted the institute’s offer to pay all costs, including the exclusive pedestrian phase for the traffic light, the LED crosswalk signs, the engineering fees and repair fees associated with the crosswalk. Holy Family had requested that changes to the traffic light and crosswalk be made to make crossing Route 65 safer for students who take buses to reach the campus of Holy Family Academy.

Council member Jason Helfrich was not present.
