Railroad work closes Allenwood roads
ALLENWOOD — Construction on a railroad crossing may affect traffic in the Allenwood area this week. According to PennDOT, a portion of South Leiser Road off Old Route 15 will be closed Tuesday through Friday.
SEDA-COG Joint Rail Authority is improving and reconstructing the grade crossing over South Leiser Road. Drainage improvements have already been made. Following the grade reconstruction, approaches to the grade crossing must be reconstructed and new paving done.
Following the Leiser Road crossing repair, repaving of White Deer Pike will begin. A portion of that road has been closed as the White Deer Railroad Bridge is reconstructed. That bridge is expected to be completed by late September, providing rail service to Great Stream Commons Business Park. (Codi Jade)
