Last month, business owners, residents, and public officials expressed concerns to the municipal board that the project could negatively impact historic buildings in the area of Old Economy.
The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission had requested additional information from the municipal authority’s engineer on the exact location of the work and other details.
Karen Ivancik, municipal authority secretary, said Emile Ketterer of NIRA Engineering submitted the information last Friday.
Ivancik said commission officials also understood that the municipal authority needed to proceed and award bids. She said the authority will take all necessary precautions during construction, which isn’t expected to begin until next year.
The contractor will also meet with citizens in Old Economy closer to the start of construction to discuss traffic changes and other details.
