Pending construction on Main St

I saw signs that the portion of Main by the train tracks will be closed in early Aug. Does that mean that they are finishing work at the intersection of Main and 1st, like decorative crosswalks? Does that also mean that a property will be going up where the Crest Club condos were to go up?

I don't know about the other work on Main Street but Norfolk Southern is going to be replacing the crossings. According to the paper they are doing Main Street around August 6th and Arch on August 9th. From what I have heard from people in Boro Hall PennDot is holding up the intersection at Main St and 1st because of the traffic light. Apparently they don't want to pay to replace it. Also I have heard that Construction is suppose to start some time later this year early next year with the condos of the sign side of Main Street. The boro apparently is going through the final approval phase. Also the Boro is working on getting the money to repave from the bridge to the crossings from the County like in the past but from what I have heard that they are also working with the developer of the condos on that as well.

Thanks, rofo for life. That's great news for the borough. One of the things that attracted me to Rofo was the vision for the riverfront and the possibility of commuter rail within walking distance in an affordable and nicely kept community with a great school district. It's nice to hear that at least the riverfront vision is continuing to progress, though I'm still (naively?) optimistic about commuter rail in our future, too.
