Many Are Dealing with Route 61 Construction Frustration


PennDOT says the time line for a major highway expansion project in Schuylkill County is on track-
       Route 61 in the Schuylkill County area is being rebuilt.

  It connects Schuylkill County to the Reading Area and the Lehigh Valley.

    The $8.6 million dollar project started in spring of 2014 and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2016.

    It can come soon enough for Nicky Fesler who’s home is right on Route 61.  She said the noise all day and night can be unbearable.

    Others say they are dealing with it for the smoother ride down the road.
