Kingston Road Reopens in Palmer

Major Palmer Township road reopens Thursday after being closed for construction work for two months.

Kingston Road has reopened.

After two months of closure for construction, the popular road that connects those coming from Forks Township to Route 248 is back in business, without fanfare.

The reopening even caught some Palmer Township officials off guard.

"I did not know that," Supervisors Chairman Dave Colver said.

The road closed in mid-July to allow construction crews to work on the side of the Northwood Center project where a strip mall, possibly including a bank, will be developed.

There, an access road was constructed and paved. Meanwhile, on Route 248, another entrance to the complex was created.

A CVS is nearly complete on the Northwood Avenue side of the project and there are also plans for a convenience store, which would be the biggest in the Lehigh Valley.

The Sheetz project has yet to be finalized for approval.

Strausser Enterprises had estimated that maybe about 1,000 to 1,500 vehicles a day use Kingston Road to get to and from Forks Township.
