Don't hesitate, or you might spoil the opportunity to quickly turn left onto Easton Road.
The much-anticipated installation of a left-turn arrow at the intersection of S. Broad Street and Easton Road -- Routes 191 and 248 -- is complete.
The arrow appears for less than 10 seconds and allows roughly three cars to make a quick exit off S. Broad.
To fund the project, Nazareth Borough was awarded a $5,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation under the Automated Red Light Enforcement (ARLE) program.
In April 2012, the total cost of the project -- which changed a three-light traffic signal to a five-light traffic signal -- was estimated at $11,175.
The borough anticipated a $6,175 payment to complete the project. However, an estimate submitted by Telco Inc. revealed potential problems with the existing light's timing mechanisms.
Because of a variety of unknowns, Nazareth Borough Council on Sept. 4 agreed to pay Telco up to $10,000. Ever the optimists, the motion approved by Council noted the project could cost as little as $6,500.
Borough engineer Aaron Sisler was not immediately available for comment Friday.
