Gay Street Bridge Project Closer to Starting?

It appears that the Gay Street Bridge construction project is one step closer to beginning. According to today's Phoenix, PennDOT is close to approving a bid from the Nyleve Bridge Corporation for the new bridge. Assuming the bid is approved, construction will begin early next year (about one year later than originally planned). If all goes as planned, the new bridge will be ready by late '09 or early '10. During that time, traffic will be detoured. Although the article does not specifically mention it, it seems that cars will be detoured to Main St. while trucks will probably have to take High St. to Township Line Rd.

Do you think this means all the car traffic will be sent down High st to Main st. or will it be detoured before High st? Just wondering since I live on High St a half block east of Franklin (113) and I'm wondering if I should expect a lot more traffic over the next two years....

My guess, and its only a guess, is that folks coming from the north on 113 will be directed to stay on Dayton St (rather than making the right on Emmett) and then make a right onto High and get to Main that way. Otherwise they'd be doubling back which doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

that's what I'm hoping as well. We'll see....

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
