PennDOT Approves Grant for West Lampeter Road Improvements, Greiner Says
10/29/2014
HARRISBURG – Rep. Keith Greiner (R-Lancaster) today announced that the state Department of Transportation has approved a $700,000 multi-modal fund grant request to replace a functionally obsolete bridge and realign the roads at the intersection of Route 2039 (Gypsy Hill Road) and Long Rifle Road (T-537).

“I understand the competition for road funds is very tight, so PennDOT’s approval of this grant request, , demonstrates the acute need to modernize this heavily traveled intersection,” Greiner said. “As the quality of life in Lancaster County continues to attract new residents, roads that were once adequate have now become congested and cause headaches and safety concerns for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.”

The approval of the grant, sought by West Lampeter Township, was also good news for the municipality’s board of supervisors and its staff.

“We greatly appreciate Representative Greiner and his staff assisting us with the recent award of a $700,000 grant for the intersection of Long Rifle and Gypsy Hill roads here in West Lampeter Township,” Chairman Barry Hershey said. “This intersection has seen an increase in traffic over the last several years, and becomes a bottleneck many times during the day. These funds will be used to improve the intersection by widening and realigning the intersection, creating safer travel for all West Lampeter Township residents.”

West Lampeter Township board of supervisors include Barry Hershey, James Kalenich, Robert Patterson, Randy Moyer and Terry Kauffman.
