Reader questions why left turns are allowed onto Joppa Road from eastbound Leaders Heights Road


View Larger Map

A reader on SeeClickFix recently asked why vehicles traveling eastbound on Leaders Heights Road are permitted to make a left turn onto Joppa Road.

The writer noted that traffic backs up behind the vehicle trying to make the left onto Joppa Road. Meanwhile, there’s a protected left-turn movement at the signal with Pine Grove Road, which is a short distance from Joppa Road.

York Township manager Elizabeth Heathcote said that when a property at the corner of Leaders Heights and Joppa roads develops, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation might determine that a turning lane or signal will be required at that intersection.

Since Leaders Heights Road is a state road, PennDOT has the authority to make the decision, she said.
