HARVEYS LAKE BOROUGH
Current Grotto Bridge will be replaced
By SUSAN BETTINGER
Dallas Post Correspondent
The bridge construction
project, SR 415 Plan, was dis-
cussed on June 12 at the Har-
veys Lake Municipal Building.
The project will replace the
current Grotto Bridge, which
is in a deteriorating state with
concrete falling off in some
spots.
Greg Orris represented Dew-
berry Engineering, the compa-
ny that will construct the new
bridge. Orris presented plans
and answered questions from
residents in attendance.
He stated that construction
is scheduled to begin in Sep-
tember 2015 and conclude in
the spring of 2016. Orris added
that this time frame was cho-
sen in “order to avoid interfer-
ence with the boaters.” The
work should be completed be-
fore summer of 2016, the lake’s
busy season. Boating traffic
will need to be shut down for
about a month, while demo-
lition of the old bridgetakes
place.
The new bridge will see a
change in height of 15 to 16
inches in additional clearance
for boating traffic with the ex-
isting pier being removed. The
width of the new pier will be
6 or 7 feet in horizontal clear-
ance. Two spans will be re-
placed by a single span.
The proposed length of the
new bridge is 68 feet; the cur-
rent length is 45 feet. The side-
walks will be replaced by shoul-
ders, measuring 5 feet on each
side. There will be a smooth
slgpe down at the edges.
The new construction will
improve safety conditions with
adjustments being made to the
marina and Grotto Pizza prop-
erties as the vehicles will be
able to see the ongoing traffic
more clearly.
While construction is tak-
ing place, the detour route will
span approximately 2 miles,
with Old Lake Road picking
up more traffic. According to
borough secretary, Susan Sut-
ton, the detour should not be
much of an inconvenience for
residents.
KINGSTON TOWNSHIP
Roads are topic of discussion
By SUSAN DENNEY
Dallas Post Correspondent
A public hearing on changing
two Kingston Township streets
to one-way lasted only a minute
or so. The supervisors looked
out over an empty room as they
opened the hearing. The topic
elicited no comments from the
handful of residents in atten-
dance.
During their regular session,
supervisors then passed two or-
dinances which will change traf-
fic patterns on Main Street.
In the future, traffic coming
from SR 309 will be
one way onto South
Main Street to the
intersection of Di-

Supervisors and residents
