Air­port Road widen­ing

The Morning Call (Sunday) - - LOCAL NEWS -

Allen Town­ship has ap­proved a tremen­dous amount of ware­house de­vel­op­ment in the past two years.

The town­ship doesn’t have too many cor­ri­dors ca­pa­ble of han­dling that kind of truck traf­fic, so most of it will be shep­herded onto Air­port Road. (If the truck­ers don’t get lost, that is.)

FedEx Ground, with its enor­mous new hub on Wil­low­brook Road, and de­vel­op­ment part­ner Rock­e­feller Group have al­ready started im­prove­ments to Wil­low­brook and Race Street.

This year, de­vel­op­ers will pay for the cre­ation of an ex­tra lane for south­bound traf­fic on Air­port Road.

That should help fun­nel all those ex­tra trucks — and the cars get­ting ware­house em­ploy­ees to work — to Route 22 and be­yond.

Ac­cord­ing to Young, the con­struc­tion side of the project will go out to bid by early sum­mer. The work should be fin­ish­ing up in Au­gust 2020.

An­tic­i­pated cost: $5 mil­lion
