PennDOT’s closing of College Avenue and Underpass:
The pictures below depict the closing of the underpass on College Avenue from next week until the fall of 2016. The first picture shows the detour route on PennDOT’s road project map. The second picture is zoomed on the first PennDOT black and white drawing to indicate the circle of closed road and the hash marks that have been highlighted in orange are their barricades. This means that the ramp that comes off of State Routes 6 and 11 where they merge will also be closed to traffic for the next year and a half. The second image is our attempt to show the barricades on the google map so that the frame of reference is easier. Please feel free to call the Borough office (570-945-7484) for further clarification on this road closure.
Christy Mathewson Days 2015:
Christy Mathewson Days have been scheduled for September in 2015 to allow Keystone College students to participate in the events. Our previous date occurred during the college students’ summer break.
