The project to expand a busy section of Route 228 in Middlesex Township is moving forward.
PennDOT will update the public later this month- on Thursday, Feb. 28- with current plans for the Route 228 Balls Bend Project. An open house for the public to view and discuss the plans will be held from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Middlesex Township Municipal Building on Browns Hill Road in Valencia.
The proposed project includes widening a roughly 1.5-mile portion of the road from just east of Three Degree Road to the Route 8 intersection. In that section, Route 228 would go from two lanes (one in each direction) to four lanes (two in each direction).
PennDOT says planning for this project started seven years ago and officials have quoted the cost at $24 million.
