DuBois, PA – The City of DuBois hasn’t made a decision about the potential roundabout at the intersection of Beaver Drive and Division Street, but they’ve received plenty of feedback about it.
The city building got around a hundred calls, with about 30 of them in favor of constructing a roundabout and about 70 of the calls against it or suggesting other options.
The roundabout issue will be on the agenda for the next DuBois City Council meeting, which will be Monday, Nov. 13.
PennDOT has offered to pay part of the cost of project, but they have allocated that money for only a roundabout, no other options.
If DuBois goes through with a roundabout, PennDOT would pay for $300,000 and the City of DuBois would pay for the other $350,000.
The city is also looking into the cost of a solar powered traffic signal. They believe a traffic signal could cost anywhere from $400,000 to $500,000, but it doesn’t seem as though PennDOT would cover any of that expense.
City officials still want your feedback. To give them your thoughts, please call the DuBois City Building at 814-371-5521.
