Now that all the approvals are out of the way...I can't wait to see how they deal with the traffic and detours during construction. Any idea of how they are going to divert/route the traffic? Are they going to close that whole stretch of Linglestown Road for a year??

A plan to handle traffic was presented at one of the open meetings. Don't remember all the details, but the plan is to close down one lane of Linglestown Road at a time. North side for part of the project, south for the other. Traffic will be detoured, but don't recall the details.
It's too bad the final decision was done in such a sneeky way, with just 4 members of that outstanding committee present and holding it on a night the storm hit the area. They had to know people wouldn't be there.

The Feb. 15th meeting of the Village of Linglestown Committee was a regular monthly meeting.

Five committee members attended the meeting; one was out of the country; and committee chairman Eric Kessler wasn't there because he just had surgery. No one knew why other members didn't show up.

The committee revisited their recommendation for the route of the Blue Mountain Parkway loop road at the request of the township supervisors.

The village committee is an advisory panel that reports to the Lower Paxton Township Board of Supervisors.

I just read an editorial in The Paxton Herald on the Feb. 15th meeting of the Village of Linglestown Committee. This account of what happened is the kind of fiction that is the trademark of Annette Antoun, the paper's publisher.

There was no snow and ice emergency in the village -- all the problems were miles away on I-78, I-81 and I-80.

Committee chairman Eric Kessler was and still is recovering from surgery, but he sent an email to committee members about his views on the township's preference to change the location of the bypass.

In short, don't believe anything you read in The Paxton Herald.
