Town to lower Old Quarry Road speed limit

A northern sliver of the road is in the Town of New Scotland, and would not be affected by the change.

In related news, the Town Board is considering placing stop signs at two intersections in town after receiving advice from Creighton Manning. Both changes were pursued at the behest of nearby residents.

If approved, the three-way intersection of Brockley Drive and Orchard Street in Delmar would become an all-way stop. Sargent said the engineering firm's study had found cars turning left from Brockley had an obstructed view and not enough time to see westbound cars on Orchard.

"Installing a stop sign will mitigate that limited visibility," he said.

Also, the town is considering placing two stop signs at the intersection of Southwood Drive, Northwood Court and Thorndale Road. Southwood Drive's unusual split roadway makes traffic behave strangely here, as traffic has to bear right to continue on Southwood. The stop signs would be placed on Thorndale and Northwood where they intersect with Southwood.

Both proposals will be subject to a public hearing at the Town Board meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 25.""
