Summit Township to replace missing signs on road, assist with purchase of new firetruck

SUMMIT TWP — The mysterious absence of speed limit signs along Heist Road, which curves just south of Route 422, doesn’t mean there isn’t a speed limit, township supervisors said Wednesday night.

An ordinance passed almost 35 years ago still caps speeds at 35 miles per hour along this route, said township supervisor Larry Osche.

Township leaders couldn’t say when or how the signs on Heist Road went missing, after these had guided traffic there for years, said township treasurer Roxann L. Stickney after the meeting. But residents alerted them to the issue of those signs’ absence a few weeks ago, after multiple reports of drivers speeding on that road, she said.

“Either they got knocked down or someone stole them,” said Stickney. “People like to steal signs. ... I have no idea why. It’s the oddest thing.”
