Road Closure

April 3rd closure of New Texas Road

On March 21st, we were notified that New Texas Road is closing the week of April 3, 2017 as part of the Commonwealth’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. We immediately contacted the Commonwealth’s lead, Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners, and requested a delay. Since our initial contact, we have reached out to our local legislators and PennDOT to request this project be delayed until June 3, 2017.

As of today, this project will not be delayed.


School start and end times will not be altered.

Fourteen (14) buses and stops will be moved and/or times changed. Affected families will receive notification via US Postal mail and through the bus driver and school office.

Borough traffic patterns will change causing congestion on secondary roads. We expect this to delay many of the busses and routes not directly impacted by the closure. We anticipate many busses to run later than normal.

The construction is expected to last five (5) to six (6) weeks. We will notify families of changes and plan alterations as they become available.

Your flexibility and patience is appreciated. Safe student travel to and from school is our ultimate goal.
