PennDOT To Hold Public Meeting On Big Road Project In Bloom

PennDOT will host a public meeting about a plan to reconstruct parts of Routes 11 and 487 in the Town of Bloomsburg. The meeting is set for Wednesday, June 5th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Monty’s on Bloomsburg University’s Upper Campus. During the meeting, PennDOT will present plans to reconstruct East Street, Poplar Street and Ferry Road from Main Street to the Susquehanna River Bridge. Columbia Boulevard from 6th Street to Park Street will also be milled and resurfaced. The existing traffic signals at the 5th Street, 6th Street and 7th Street intersections with East Street will be replaced. The Town of Bloomsburg is developing a project to construct sidewalks and street lighting, which will be incorporated into the PennDOT project. The reconstruction will be done in short phases so the entire length of road won’t be closed for the duration of the project. The work is tentatively scheduled to begin in Spring 2021.
