Linglestown Gazette: Roundabouts next up in Linglestown makeover

Roundabouts next up in Linglestown makeover

Plans for restarting the Linglestown improvement project were discussed last week during the Village of Linglestown Committee meeting.

Work is slated to resume on Monday, March 28 with traffic once again limited to one westbound lane on Linglestown Road through the village.

Work will begin with construction of the north halves of the two roundabouts, and then in mid-May work will switch to the south side of the road to complete the roundabouts.

Separately, sewer work will take place on N. Mountain Road in the area of the square.

If all goes as planned, the final layer of asphalt will be applied toward the end of June.

The project will be completed with the installation of benches, planting of trees and landscaping of grass areas.

As was the case last year, all village merchants will be open for business during construction, and newly paved alleys will make it easier to navigate around construction to reach restaurants and shops.

Getting in and out of Balthaser remains a problem. I was looking forward to the traffic-slowing bumps/pedestrian walkways that were described previously as a part of this project. There is little that will make breaks in the Linglestown Rd traffic as it passes Balthaser. Those traffic bumps seemed to be our only hope. I haven't heard any mention of them lately.

There will be cement islands, called chicanes, installed before and after the sharp turn at the east end of village.

Hopefully they will break up traffic at Balthaser.

this construction project is a joke and has been misplanned from the start. the township doesn't care about the residents and especially the businesses that will suffer as a result of this senseless and waste of tax payer money (im sure the businesses will go to court) that will last until august...and i feel for them. one-way road until august?? are you kidding me? and for what some red brick sidewalks and benches?? the township supervisor should be fired.
