Police: Road Closing For Rail Crossing Upgrade

DOUGLASS (BERKS) PA – Squirrel Hollow Road, between Benjamin Franklin Highway and Old Philadelphia Pike, will close Monday (Aug. 20, 2018) and remain closed for two to three days, the Douglass (Berks) Township Police Department reported on its Facebook page.

If weather permits, Norfolk Southern Railroad crews will use the time to upgrade the rail crossing on Squirrel Hollow. A detour plan will be in place to re-route traffic during construction; drivers should “look for the appropriate signs,” the department added.

It thanked drivers for their advance cooperation and understanding.
