Speed display sign set up near Bald Eagle Area High School

A radar-controlled speed display sign is now alerting drivers to how fast they’re traveling past the Bald Eagle Area High School after a resident complained to the Boggs Township Board of Supervisors.

The sign was recently placed between Sunset Acres and Country Lane, a state Department of Transportation news release said. The display board will remain in place for up to four weeks and is to aid in curbing speeding, “a common type of aggressive driving.”

The sign faces northbound traffic, posting speeds on the lighted section of the sign, the release said. The posted speed limit along that section of South Eagle Valley Road is 35 mph.

A township resident complained to the Board of Supervisors in November, secretary James Strunk said, saying she made the request because “she feels that traffic is not slowing down to the school-zone speed limit.”
