Shohola may break with ambulance company

In another matter, Aaron Robinson, a member of the township planning commission, told supervisors that Route 434 is experiencing increased truck traffic due to the weight limit placed on the bridge that spans the Upper Delaware River in Narrowsburg, NY. The limit for a single vehicle is now 15 tons, and the limit for a combination vehicle such as a tractor-trailer is 27 tons.

The increased truck traffic is a concern because Route 434 is a main artery and is in “deplorable condition,” Robinson said.

Fluhr agreed, saying, “[Route] 434 is disintegrating as we speak.”

The supervisors agreed to send letters to PennDOT and other organizations.
