  • Sinkhole at RES Soccer Field

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 3/26/2019 3:15:00 PM

    A large sinkhole opened today on the soccer field to the west of RES, in the direction of Lime Spring Farm. This morning, the custodian had walked the soccer field and a hole was not present at that time. At afternoon recess, some third grade students noticed the hole and responsibly reported it to the playground staff. All outside activities where immediately moved to the blacktop and mulch areas, far from the location of the sinkhole.

    At this time, the area is blocked with sawhorses, cones, and caution tape. We are working to install “snow fence” to further block off the opening, which is approximately 8’ to 10’ at the surface and approximately 20’ deep. An engineer will be on-site tomorrow, Wednesday, March 27 morning to help recommend a remediation plan to address the sinkhole.

  • Transportation & Bridge Closures

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 3/14/2019 1:30:00 PM

    On Monday, March 18, construction begins to replace both overpass bridges on State Street by the Landisville exit of Route 283. Because both bridges will be replaced at the same time, the contractor will narrow the road to a single lane with alternating traffic. This will allow the contractor to replace one side of both bridges and then the other side of both bridges. This project is scheduled to take place over the span of two years. During this time, Route 283 exit and on-ramps may be closed depending on which side of the bridge is being worked on. 

    Our Transportation Department has rerouted 42 bus routes to avoid this area for the next two years. Students and families directly impacted by a change in bus schedule were notified via a letter sent postal mail. If you must travel to/from our district’s Landisville campus for other reasons, we recommend that you plan for delays or consider alternate routes to account for this bridge construction. If we receive construction updates, we will update you accordingly.
