WAYNE COUNTY – In efforts to strengthen community relations and open the floor for residents to express their concerns regarding transportation issues, Sen. Lisa Baker (R-Luzerne/Pike/Susquehanna/Wayne/Wyoming), and Reps. Jonathan Fritz (R-Wayne/Susquehanna) and Mike Peifer (R-Pike/Wayne) announced an upcoming Wayne County PennDOT town hall meeting on Thursday, Dec. 19, from 6-8 p.m., at Damascus School Gymnasium, 174 High School Road, Damascus.
“Tax-paying residents are understandably frustrated and concerned about the condition of the region’s roads,” said Fritz. “Our goal is to have dialogue with PennDOT in order to highlight issues and emphasize a need for corrective action.”
“The unacceptable condition of roads in the region creates safety problems and drives up costs for motorists,” said Baker. “This forum will give residents and local officials an opportunity to share their concerns and complaints about deficiencies in priorities for repairs and maintenance with PennDOT officials.”
Fritz said that this town hall comes in response to an abundance of resident concerns over the condition of local roads in upper northeast Pennsylvania. This event creates a platform for residents to openly talk with PennDOT representatives about these warranted concerns and be informed of possible courses of action to be taken to help correct these problems.
