PennDOT Updates Council on 248 Re-alignment Plan
After much anticipation from Borough Council, PennDOT presented their Preliminary Plan for a 248 Re-alignment during the March 2, 2020 Council Meeting. During the presentation it was made clear that this aligning of State Route 248 [West Main Street, and West and East Northampton] would aid to curtail tractor trailer traffic entering the downtown area. Although this road improvement is completely separate from the Borough's recently unveiled Long Range Transportation Improvement Plan, it will inevitably work in conjunction with the TIP to eliviate the stress of traffic and truck congestion in the main downtown area.
PennDOT officials will keep the Borough up to date on the status of the re-alignment as it enters the next phase. Click the link above to view the presentation.
