Any road not included on said Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan and/or § 128-24A above shall not be deemed to have been vacated by the Board of Supervisors, nor shall the road or road lines indicated on the Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan be deemed to constitute the opening or establishment of any road, nor the taking or the acceptance of any land for street purposes, nor shall it obligate the Township to improve or maintain any such road. The Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan shall be in no way conclusive as to the exact and precise location of any road or landmark hereon, and said Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan only shows the general locations of such roads. The Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan is only intended to illustrate the names given and/or assigned to such roads within Tobyhanna Township.
The proper authorities of the Township are hereby directed to erect official signs establishing the names of the aforementioned Township roads, and to do so in conformity with the provisions of the Tobyhanna Township Code of Ordinances and the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code.[1]

Any road not listed in § 128-24A above but identified on the Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan is not a Township road. The roads identified on the Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan and not listed in § 128-24A above are private roads within the Township of Tobyhanna pursuant to the Monroe County 911 Addressing Project. Any such road included on said Tobyhanna Township Road Names Plan shall not be deemed to constitute the opening or establishment of any road, nor the taking or the acceptance of any land for street purposes, nor shall it obligate the Township to improve or maintain any such road.
