Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown roundabout passes first test

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Linglestown roundabout passes first test

The roundabout in the Linglestown square got a preliminary test today when construction workers changed the traffic pattern in the village to make way for finishing work on the central island of the roundabout.

The design passed the initial test. I witnessed a school bus make the left-hand turn from N. Mountain Road onto westbound Route 39 with no problem after some construction barriers were moved.

Route 39 is now open in both directions from the square heading east.

Traffic approaching the square on N. Mountain Road will be able to turn right onto Route 39 eastbound, or turn left around the partially built circle to head westbound through the village on Route 39.

Here are some other notes on the project:

* All the trees have been planted along Linglestown Road and along the new Blue Mountain Parkway bypass, and grass areas have been repaired and seeded.

* Sewer work on Mountain Road beside the Eagle Hotel was complicated by the need to remove an old buried gasoline storage tank. One was also found near Lio’s Pizza & Sub Shop.

* Planning is under way to hold a celebration to mark the completion of the project.

* If the rest of May is relatively dry, there’s a change that Route 39 could be opened to traffic in both directions by Memorial Day weekend.

Thanks for the update. also for now, Pennsylvania Ave at the roundabout by the Fire Station is not open. although you can turn into the newer building and go thru the lot to get back on PA Ave.

I think the fire company tries to discourage people from using the parking-lot shortcut.

Taking Ranger Road and then weaving your way into the village is probably a better bet.

Did I miss an orange Mountain Road detour sign?

I transport children to Sylvan Learning Ctr. and this week I looped around twice before finding a way back onto Mountain Road via Catherine.

It's entirely possible there is a sign and I missed it. If there isn't a detour sign, there should be.

Thank you. Like your site...nice.

There are no detour signs in the village for getting to N. Mountain Rd. from Linglestown Rd.

The shortest detour is use the alleys and side streets to get to N. Mountain Rd.
