Petition to Keep Route 11 Open During 3+ Week Road Resurfacing
Petition Summary: Penn DOT and Kinsley Construction of York, PA are to close State Route 11 between the river bridge and Route 147 intersection, in Northumberland Borough/ Point Township. This is a minimum 3-week roadway-resurfacing project planned to begin June 2nd, 2009. Previous road closures at this same location have caused hours of daily traffic delays in Northumberland Borough, Point Township, Sunbury and other surrounding communities. A road closure at this location will also negatively affect access to little league ball fields, boat access to the river, and most importantly businesses in Northumberland Borough, Point Township, Sunbury, Selinsgrove, Shamokin Dam, and other surrounding areas due to discouraged motorists. Action Petitioned for: We, the undersigned, are concerned citizens who urge our leaders (PA Rep Merle H. Phillips, Northumberland Borough Council, and Sunbury City Council) to contact Penn Dot and Kinsley Construction and demand that one direction of traffic remains open during all phases of this construction.
