Quarry Road drilling starts today

Pennsylvania Drilling Co. of Imperial will be performing geotechnical core boring work on Quarry Road in Snyder Township, starting today, PennDOT said.

Subcontractor Roadsafe will close Quarry Road for the duration of the drilling. A detour will use Route 453, Silver Barn Road, Hileman Road and Quarry Road.

The three proposed core borings are anticipated to be completed by Friday.
