Emporium Borough officials are looking into measures to reduce the number of crashes on a corner near the Cameron County School District.

A streets committee meeting has been set for next week, and input is expected from Emporium Borough Police Chief Dave Merritt and Street Supervisor Ted Walters on how to ensure that drivers going around the corner where West Allegany meets Woodland Avenue are safe.

Merritt stated that there have been several accidents involving collisions between automobiles and large sand or water trucks at that location over the past two months. That stretch of road is part of PennDOT-owned Route 46, and is the only entrance to town for residents living in the North Creek, Clear Creek and Rich Valley areas, and visitors accessing Emporium from Smethport and beyond.
