    Petition to stop Route 147 Interchange

    POINT TOWNSHIP — PennDOT’s draft plan for the Route 147/CSVT interchange continues to worry some Northumberland area residents – and now they have a petition.  We spoke to Dick Updegraff, a resident of Ridge Road in Point Township, in November, who says the proposed interchange will pump heavy traffic directly onto his road.   He said, “This proposed interchange provides an on and off ramp onto Ridge Road.  I don’t quite understand the need for it… The new CSVT roadway will eventually just empty right onto Route 180, without the interchange.
