Road Closure Notification

We have been notified by the Contractor:

Effective March 2nd

Rt 174 will be closed between Pine Road and the Maple Ave./High Mtn Road intersection in Walnut Bottom

Closure is for approximately 85 days


The members of the Pennsylvania State Police, Troop H, Carlisle Station, would like to remind motorists to be cognizant of the return to school by students and staff. In the interest of safety, we will be enhancing our monitoring and enforcement of speed limits around schools. Students, staff, and parents should also be aware that an increased presence of uniformed members, in both marked and unmarked patrol vehicles, will be seen in school areas, around events, and within parking lots throughout the school year.

Additionally, surveillance of school buses and subsequent enforcement actions will be taken against motorists failing to stop and obey school bus flashing lights and controls. Routinely students will be gathering around bus stops, crossing roadways, and at times possibly rushing to get to their bus arrival point or departing from their bus toward their homes after school. Motorists share a tremendous responsibility to be aware, be safe, and be ready to stop!

Community members ask asked to be diligent in their efforts to report any observed unusual activity at or around school bus stops. Parents should discuss and enact a plan to ensure an adult in always present at bus stops for both student arrivals and departures. Suspicious vehicles and individuals can be reported to the State Police in Carlisle by calling 717-249-2121.

We all must do our part to keep our students safe.

PA Yellow Dot Program

Pennsylvania’s Yellow Dot Program was created to assist citizens in the “golden hour” of emergency care following a traffic crash when they may not be able to communicate themselves. Placing a yellow dot in your vehicle’s rear window alerts first responders to check your glove compartment for vital information to ensure that you receive the critical medical attention you need.

The program is a cooperative effort among the Pennsylvania Departments of Transportation, Health and Aging; the Pennsylvania State Police; the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission; and first responders and local law enforcement.

How the Program Works

Participants complete a personal information form, which includes the participant’s name, contact information, emergency contact information, medical history and medications, allergies and the participant’s doctors’ contact information. A photo – showing only the participant’s head and shoulders – is then taped to the front of the completed information sheet.

The yellow dot decal provided in the program kit is placed in the lower left corner of the vehicle’s rear window. The top of the sticker should be no higher than 3.5 inches from the bottom of the window. This decal alerts first responders that vital information can be found in the vehicle.

Place the completed information sheet, with the attached picture, into the Yellow Dot folder, and then place the folder into the vehicle’s dashboard glove compartment.
