Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown alley to be paved this week

Linglestown alley to be paved this week

UPDATE: According to a reader's comment, the paving project was postponed until October to allow uninterrupted access to businesses while Linglestown Road is being reconstructed.

Blackberry Lane, the alley located north of the square, is supposed to be paved this week, according to a post on a PennLive.com forum by a Linglestown resident. The section from Blue Mountain Parkway to North Mountain Road will be improved. Lower Paxton Township is using grant money to fund the project.

No construction was evident when I walked the alley this afternoon.

The alley has become a key alternative route for eastbound traffic on Linglestown Road to get to the square, Lio’s Pizza & Sub Shop and other businesses.

Check out the “slow down” sign in the photo. Homeowners along Blackberry Lane say motorists regularly travel at high rates of speed on the alley, and they are concerned that the problem will get worse after it is paved.

I’d say 25 mph 15 mph is an appropriate speed since the alley is narrow and has numerous driveways and residential garages. (Suggested speed limit changed based on reader feedback.)

Raspberry Lane, which is located just south of Linglestown Road, will be paved this fall after stormwater drainage work is completed.

I hate to disagree, but as someone who lives along the alley, 25mph is WAY too fast to go down the alley. 15 is more acceptable.

Thanks for the feedback, Brian. I stand corrected.

Why are they stopping at N. Mtn Rd?
Can't they pave past the businesses and houses that are east of N. Mtn Rd?

Unfortunately, the paving that was to be done is on hold. The plan is to pave later in October when Linglestown Road is open in both directions.

I don't see how they could begin paving Blackberry Alley east of Mountain Rd. until they reopen Linglestown Rd. on the eastbound side. Otherwise, businesses like Lio's would be unreachable from both the front and the back.
