New Traffic Pattern to Take Effect in Elizabethtown for Improved Safety


ELIZABETHTOWN, PA — PennDOT is set to enhance road safety in Elizabethtown Borough Township, Lancaster County, with the introduction of an All-Way Stop at the intersection of West Bainbridge Street (Route 241) and Masonic Drive. Scheduled for installation on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, this new measure aims to regulate traffic flow and minimize accidents in a busy area.

To ensure motorists are aware of the upcoming change, the intersection will be equipped with “Stop Ahead” signs featuring flashing amber lights, alongside new stop signs that will flash red for added visibility.

These illuminations are designed to draw attention to the updated stopping condition, with the amber lights set to remain for 30 days and the red lights for 60 days before being removed.

Additionally, a variable message sign (VMS) will be deployed to alert northbound drivers to the new traffic pattern.
