Jim Thorpe, April 14, 2016- State Senator John Yudichak issued the following statement this afternoon after a meeting to address the traffic safety problems on Route 93 in Nesquehoning.

“Every Carbon County resident who raised concerns about the serious traffic safety problem on Route 93 had their voices heard today by state, county and local authorities who are working together to mitigate the truck accidents that are happening at an alarming rate,” said State Senator John Yudichak (D-Luzerne/Carbon).

“All safety options are on the table to address the rash of truck accidents on Broad Mountain including increased enforcement and an out-right ban on large tractor trailers that use Route 93 to by-pass safer alternative trucking routes,” said Senator Yudichak.
