Route 23 to be closed during day tomorrow through Friday

Starting tomorrow, Wednesday the 22nd, and ending on Friday the 24th, Route 23 will be closed between Pawlings Rd. and Ferry Lane for 'Cinema Production'. On Wednesday and Thursday, the road will be closed from 9am-3pm. On Friday, it will be closed from 9am-9pm.

The PennDOT site indicates that detour signs will be up to help direct traffic. I would imagine they will direct you north to the intersection of Ferry and Pawlings.

Thanks to reader Brian for pointing out the fact that signs were put up earlier this week.

Update: It appears that the reason for the closing is the filming of M. Night Shyamalan's new movie, The Happening which starts Mark Wahlberg. For more information on the movie, see IMDB.com

I've got some photos of Mark on my blog. I work across the street from the G-Lodge.

So, what happened to the G-Lodge. It's all new signs and a silly new name (not that anyone will ever use it).

Did they change it for the movie? Is it staying? Is it new management?

Curious minds want to know...

There was an article in last week's Phoenix (sorry, I don't have a link) that seemed to indicate the signs were brought in solely for the shoot and that it will remain the G-Lodge.

Does anyone have any idea where they are shooting now? I will give ANYTHING to catch a glimpse of Mark Wahlberg!

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
