Changes are coming to Industrial Drive and Long Avenue in Orwigsburg Borough -- they are receiving an $819,000 dollar grant
The project will improve 11 businesses and create an estimated 349 jobs in Orwigsburg and Schuylkill County.
The project is being completed to address the problem with stormwater, delivery vehicle access, employee vehicle access, and pedestrian safety.
The project will also help to improve emergency response time and access for vehicles such as fire, police and ambulance not only to the parcels located within the Industrial Park, but also to the surrounding area, as the roadways grant access to other cross streets within the Borough.
This project will help contribute to sustainable economic development by providing safe and efficient accessibility to existing businesses/manufacturers and to vacant land available for development to new industries.
