ANCRAM— The Ancram Highway Department deployed the second of two radar signs last week. The latest one is on Route 82 southbound into Ancram.  The first sign went up in Ancramdale on County Route 8 by Crest Lane in early December. 

According to town Supervisor Art Bassin, it’s all in an effort to slow traffic down in the hamlets of Ancram and Ancramdale. 

Highway Superintendent Jim Miller reported that he has gotten positive feedback on the signs from residents who live near where the signs have been installed.
