Travelers coming from State College or Penn State’s campus pass through this spot to get to the nearby University Park Airport, about a mile past this intersection on Fox Hill Road.
The project will move the stop sign to Bernel road, giving both directions of traffic on Fox Hill Road the right of way, making this a much safer “standard T” intersection. The manager of Patton Township says he’s thrilled to see this take place, as it’s been a long time coming.
“Oh this project has probably been on our list for twenty years. So, finally being able to pull enough money partners together was probably the important step. We’re government we don’t really get excited, but we’re glad to see this work, uh, finally will be completed.”
If mother nature cooperates, the project should wrap up by the end of the Summer.
