Pa. Dept. of Transportation To Pave Allentown Road.
Get ready for some local road construction on Allentown Road. Just over two miles of Allentown road will be paved after construction crews removed the old layer. The paving will begin at 6pm Wednesday night until 6am Thursday morning. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation says, drivers can expect some temporary lane closures, but no detours. The paving project will include Allentown to Troxel and Wambold roads. The material being laid for paving is expected to be good for ten years. It’s the first time in nearly 16 years that Allentown road will be paved.
Comm. Property in Lansdale to Change part to Apartment Unit
A property owner in downtown Lansdale wants to convert half of his first floor of commercial building into an apartment unit. 726 West Main Street used to have a residential component, but is currently occupied by a home improvement business. The code enforcement and land planning committee of the Borough Council does not oppose the plans. Council member, Jack Hansen is the committee chair.
“The only thing that’s coming up is the parking requirement, cause the Borough would require at this time trimmed as six parking spots. He has four that are already on site. His business does not use them. They come in and out when they park during the day.”
The Zoning Hearing Board will take up the parking issue at its meeting later this month.
