[UPDATED With Map and More Info] Wilder Ridge and Landergen Road Reopens
Wren Belcher, a local, explained that for the last five days a local company, William J. Etter Construction,
rebuilt the roadway built a detour. Yesterday, the workers allowed locals to intermittently drive through the area which has been closed for over a month.
Saying the work was being done with “amazing speed,” Belcher urged travelers to drive carefully. “The Smith Etter Road has one-way traffic in some areas,” he said.UPDATE: We spoke to Tony Seghetti, the Deputy Public Works Director for engineering. He explained that the road was opened by the end of the work day yesterday but there are some restrictions.
The road coming from Ettersburg has one-lane stop control so drive carefully. But, more importantly, the road coming from the north end has length restrictions for the vehicles headed through. A sign will be placed reading, “Length Restrictions of 32′ from Kingpin to rear axle.”
