Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown construction inspection report

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Linglestown construction inspection report

Work on the Linglestown improvement project has been under way three days. I'm now in citizen inspector mode, and below are my findings.

- Linglestown Road has been cut for the island at the roundabout in the square (pictured). It appears to be at least 10-15 times larger than the old one.

- Marks have been painted on Linglestown Road to outline the two chicanes on the east end of the village. One is located in front of the medical building near Balthaser Street, and the other is just east of Margaret Avenue.

- Digging has started in front of the Eagle Hotel on N. Mountain Road to install a new sewer line. Parking is still available in most of the restaurant's lot and in the square.

- Speaking of the square, motorists on Linglestown Road cannot make a turn onto N. Mountain Road.

- Blackberry Alley is open from Blue Mountain Parkway to Linglestown Life Church, but no right-hand turns are allowed onto N. Mountain Road to get to the square.

- The streetlight that was knocked down was repaired today.

- The tentative construction schedule calls for road improvements to be finished by late June or early July.

Why didn't they pave the last part of Blackberry alley last year when they did the rest? That part of the alley has very large potholes and since we have to go that way, it would be nice if they paved that. . .plus, cut down on all that dust.
anybody have info on that?

My understanding is that eastern half of Blackberry Alley is beyond the scope of the village improvement project, and the township had limited funds to pave the alleys.

Also, the section you asked about has a dead end and would not have helped traffic flow in the village.

Lastly, the township currently does not have authority to work on the unpaved section of Blackberry Alley. It is owned by property owners that border the alley.

Noticed that "someone" filled in the potholes a bit. . .thank you to who ever did that. Since I have to travel that alley to get home, it is much appreciated.
