Rapps Dam Road Bridge To Be Closed in January

East Pikeland Township has announced on their website that the covered bridge on Rapps Dam Road will be closed at some point during January for repairs by PennDOT.
The township has just been notified by PennDOT that the reconstruction project for the Rapps Dam Road Covered Bridge will begin in JANUARY. The exact date for road closure has not yet been announced, but detour signs will be posted two weeks in advance.

The project, which includes rebuilding the steel structure and removing and replacing portions of the roof, siding and decking, is not expected to be completed until November, 2011.

The bridge was originally constructed in 1866 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The project will extend the life of the structure while maintaining its historic significance.

Great move. Take out the alternative to Harres Hill bridge that is also closed. Pure genius at work in PA.

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
