The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation is reviewing bids for the construction of West College Avenue, and if PennDOT approves the low bid Elizabethtown Borough Council may vote and approve it as early as next month. If things go according to plan, the borough is anticipating that construction will start in March and will last for a year and a half.
While it has been an inconvenience for traffic, the delay in the project came after the borough had to do further environmental studies of underground storage tanks on the property at the old service station.
Many thanks go to Mars Inc. for its community support that has allowed traffic to skirt across its private property throughout the project. Once completed, traffic will have a straight shot past the chocolate plant, across the creek to Market Street.
