PennDOT announced that design work will begin soon to improve Route 248 (POW/MIA Remembrance Highway) in East Penn, Franklin, and Lower Towamensing townships, and Bowmanstown, Palmerton, and Parryville boroughs in Carbon County.

 

The road needs work to repair the road base, riding surface, median barriers, and to improve fencing on a mountainside rock slope.

 

Work is expected to last 18-to-24 months, with construction work anticipated to be placed out for bids in late 2020 or early 2021. All schedules are estimates and subject to change. (Posted 5/29/19)
