Allentown Road in Towamencin Township will be closed temporarily, beginning Oct. 28, from Derstine Road to Forty Foot Road so road improvements can be completed related to the Thorndale residential land development. Contractor Alan A. Myers Inc. will be installing a new box culvert northwest of the Thorndale entrance, located across from Towamencin Shopping Village's entrance/exit and shared with the North Penn Water Authority entrance. Towamencin Township reported the replacement is required by PennDOT. A detour, overseen by McMahon Associates, will be in place for up to four weeks. Traffic will be detoured down Derstine Road, Clemens Road and Forty Foot Road.
