Middletown Township Police Department has announced that PECO gas line work on Old Lincoln Highway between West Maple Avenue and West Gillam Avenue will start the week of October 24th and will be Monday to Friday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The project is expected to last a few months.
The road will be closed to traffic with the exception of local traffic, emergency vehicles and school buses which will be permitted to pass through the construction area. There will be delays due to lane restrictions in the area.
The official detour for the project is West Gillam Avenue to Pine Street (Rt. 413). The road will be open when there is no construction taking place. At some point in the project parts of Brownsville Road, West Richardson and Hulmeville Road will also have similar restrictions.
