Brewster Leads Effort to Reopen Bunola River Road

Senator Jim Brewster

The Bunola River Road that services Elizabeth and Forward Townships, Elizabeth Borough and West Elizabeth that was closed to traffic in late January has now reopened following the installation of traffic signals, state Sen. Jim Brewster said today.

Following the opening of the road, Brewster issued the following statement:

“My thanks to the leadership of the local PennDOT district office for working with officials in Elizabeth Township, Forward, Elizabeth and West Elizabeth to safely reopen Bunola River Road.

“First responders are again able to get to people in need more quickly.   Special thanks to PennDOT District Engineer Cheryl Moon-Sirianni for helping to find a way to open this road while keeping safety as the top priority.

“West Penn Power also moved quickly to provide electricity to power the traffic signals. A great example of working together to get things done!”

In a statement late last month, Brewster expressed confidence that PennDOT officials, working in concert with local elected representatives, would find the means to reopen the road in short order.
