Maps: Route differences and HDD Impacts in PA

This post shows the differences between the February 2016 route and the September 2016 route, and also the new HDD site impacts from the September 2016 route.

This post covers PA.  There was also one for NJ.  I’ll also be covering access road impacts in a separate post as well.


In these posts the bright pink line with the milepost numbers is the February 2016 route. In some cases we include the 400′ survey corridor for that as well.

The new September 2016 route shows the actual ROW in faded pink and orange, and temporary work spaces in cyan.

PA Appalachian Trail HDD

A very large change by the Appalachian Trail.  They are now doing a very small HDD under the trail itself, but with the corresponding large HDD site impacts at entry/exit.  Plus far more extensive tree cutting to accommodate this route.

PA Hatchery Road Major Change

A major change near Hatchery Road to try to bring the pipeline within a utility easement.  What it’s doing is actually widening an existing 200′ wide cut to 250′ wide.  And now, instead of going through a valley, it is going up and down the mountains on steep slopes.
