PennDOT still looking to close purchase of house for project

December 20, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — PennDOT District 10 has not closed the purchase of the house located adjacent to the Route 119 (Ridge Avenue) and Route 310 (Elk Run Avenue) intersection.

Ben White, Punxsutawney Borough manager, said at a recent borough council meeting that PennDOT is hoping to close on the property after the holidays.

Mark Rozich, PennDOT District 10 highway design engineer, said at last month’s Route 119 committee meeting that the purchase of the brown house on the corner of the intersection for demolition became a really complicated issue from an appraisal standpoint.
