Update on Routes 33 and 512
By State Rep. Marcia Hahn
138th Legislative District
The Route 33/512 interchange in Plainfield Township and Wind Gap Borough is getting a facelift. The project includes the milling and paving of approximately one mile of Route 33, a new median barrier along Route 33, rehabilitation of the Route 33 bridges over Route 512 and Male Road, patching and paving of Route 512 between Epps Street and Male Road, and the installation of a traffic signal at Route 512 and Jacobsburg Road.
During the first phase of construction, Route 33 will experience nighttime lane restrictions weekdays from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day. This work will begin in the southbound direction then move to the northbound side. This work is estimated to be completed by July.
Traffic will then be shifted to the median or shoulder area to allow two lanes of Route 33 to be maintained in both directions. No long-term lane restrictions are scheduled, but motorists may experience short-term lane restrictions when needed.
There will also be lane restrictions on Route 512 between Male Road and Epps Street, but one lane of traffic will be maintained in both directions at all times. The project is expected to be complete in May 2015.
Promoting Use of Natural Gas – Pennsylvania’s Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Natural Gas Vehicle program is now open. It will provide an estimated $10 million in grants to help companies and organizations purchase or convert medium to light-weight natural gas vehicles.
Grant funds are available for the conversion or purchase of natural gas vehicles weighing less than 14,000 pounds, as well as the conversion or purchase of electric, propane or other alternative fuel vehicles of any size.
Please contact my district office at (610) 746-2100 for more information.
