6.6.13 – Penn State pushes for continued evaluation of on-campus pipeline routes

The route would begin at Porter Road and travel north to and along University Drive to cross Park Avenue. It would then travel west until turning south on Shortlidge Road. It will proceed to Curtin Road and then down Burrowes Road to where it connects with the West Campus Steam Plant…At this point, identification of the northern route is only preliminary, [Ford] Stryker stressed, and it is more complex and lengthy than the original proposed route…”
