PECO will complete night work for the placement of their new gas line on Rt. 23 on Thursday night (November 29-30). Day work for this project will be completed on Tuesday, December 4. Following this completion, the detour will be removed and normal traffic patterns will recommence. Rt. 23 will be detoured in the park in the near future, however, to allow the placement of electric and telecommunications lines.
Please check the park’s website for further details and updates.
The project is the second of three utility relocations in advance of the upcoming project to replace the old Betzwood Bridge over the Schuylkill River. Construction of the new bridge is expected to begin in spring of 2009 and finish by the end of 2010.
