Supervisors pay for map of proposed relief route

May 18, 2004|by RICHARD BELISLE

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Washington Township Supervisors voted Monday to spend about $14,000 to have a contour map made of a proposed bypass that would eventually wind around Waynesboro.According to plans, the bypass, or relief route, as local officials prefer to call it, would begin on Pa. 16 east of Waynesboro near Yingling's Garage, run through a new Wal-Mart-anchored shopping center to be built on the north side of Pa. 16 in Rouzerville, Pa., and end its first leg on Old Forge Road. Eventually it would wind its way through hundreds of acres of farmland that have been rezoned for residential development.

It will intersect with Country Club, Gehr and Tomstown roads, Pa. 997 and 316 and, sometime in the future, end up back on Buchanan Trail west of Waynesboro, plans said.

Washington Township Manager Michael Christopher said the route can be officially adopted once it's mapped.
