Part of Route 66 in Washington Township will be closed for about a month beginning Jan. 15, PennDOT announced Tuesday.

The road will be closed between Route 819 and Orr Avenue until Feb. 15.

Anthony Manifest, the owner of ATV and motorcycle repair service Four Brothers Supply, said the planned road construction caught him off guard.

“PennDOT didn't notify me at all,” he said. “I didn't get anything in the mail, didn't get anyone stopping in the shop. I found out when someone told me this morning.”

Manifest said that Route 66 is a busy road, but that traffic coming to his business and the neighboring Creekside Diner will still have access via Route 819.

“We'll still be here. Still open and still selling,” Manifest said.

Work in the area will include tree trimming and rock scaling.

The detour will use Route 356, Hyde Park Road and Route 56.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
