PennDOT Hosting a Virtual Public Meeting for the Skinners Falls Bridge PEL Study

By Margaret Allen
A planning study is being prepared for the Skinners Falls Bridge which crosses the Delaware River connecting Milanville, PA and Skinners Falls, NY. It was closed due to safety concerns in October 2019. PennDOT is completing a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study and, along with the New York State Department of Transportation, is seeking input from the community to better understand how to move forward to meet local transportation needs within realistically available financial resources. A virtual public meeting takes place tomorrow evening.

The study represents a collaborative and integrated approach that will consider community, environmental, historic, and economic goals. PennDOT will be accepting public comment on its website from March 30th through April 23rd.
