Route 715 Bridge Replacement
A bridge on route 715 in Chestnuthill Township that was originally supposed to be replaced in 2015 will now be worked on starting Monday. It was delayed because of permit and right of way issues. The bridge will be closed Monday and one of the detours forces drivers to travel down Effort Neola Road leading to Route 115. That news has a local business on 115 anticipating more business. Graham Phinney Cashier/Clerk Route 115 Sub Shop says, "Oh my gosh closing down like that all the traffic that's going to come down Effort and Neola we ought to have some signs at our gas station, we'll pick up a little bit of business." Officials say the work should be completed in ten weeks and the newly constructed bridge should last over 100 years.
