High School Avenue to close Aug. 9 for repaving

Street paving is scheduled for Tuesday, August 9, on High School Avenue. Residents are asked not to park any vehicles on the street from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on that day. Vehicles left on High School Avenue during this time may be subject to towing at the owner’s expense.

The project will require the closing of the Model Avenue/High School Avenue intersection, so access to the high school will be limited to the Cottage Avenue entrance on August 9.

The paving schedule may be delayed due to weather conditions. We will provide updates, as needed. We thank you for your continued cooperation!

Drone shots show Phase 2 construction progress

New photographs shot by a drone camera show how much progress has been made recently on the second phase of the Penn Manor High School construction and renovation project.

Max Bushong, a Penn Manor High School junior, piloted the drone on April 25, 2021, to capture images of the new field house, media/technology center, academic wings and parking areas being built as part of Phase 2, which is expected to be completed by the end of summer.

Phase 1, which included a new STEM wing, auditorium, music classrooms and performance spaces and agricultural education and engineering classrooms and shops, was completed in early 2021.

The third phase of the project will involve demolition of the former ninth-grade building and the removal of the modular classrooms and temporary gym to make way for new physical education and health facilities to complement the existing gymnasium.

Phase 3 is scheduled for completion next summer, and final site work should wrap up by the end of 2022.

You can see a live photo of the construction project here.

Many thanks to Max — who has been documenting the project since before demolition began — for his terrific work up in the sky!
