Boyertown Police – Be Aware of New Stop Signs

The Boyertown Police Department would like to announce the permanent closure of E. Third Street between S. Chestnut Street and Pear Street in the Borough today. This closure follows a decision of Borough Council several months ago, and is accompanied by the addition of stop signs on E. Third Street  eastbound at S. Chestnut, and on E. Second Street eastbound and westbound at S. Chestnut Street Рmeaning the intersections of E.Third and Chestnut, and Second and Chestnut have become all way stop intersections. Police will begin monitoring these new stop locations for driver compliance, and ask drivers in the borough to be especially alert to the changes until all drivers become familiar with the new traffic patterns. Early reports indicate that driver compliance may be low, and we want to try to correct that through information and education before it leads to accidents, and before we begin enforcement.
