This is part of the 3D flyover video series of the PennEast routes. In this installment, we do a flyover of the route through Hopewell Township, NJ.
The video starts at the Goat Hill Natural Heritage Priority Site, and proceeds to show the route going through several farms in the Valley Road area. We follow the HDD under Moore’s creek, and the HDD staging site up on Baldpate Mountain.
The route then continues on Baldpate, not co-located at all, but creating a new area of devastation to the West of the power line cut, all in areas of dense old growth forest and steep slopes. And, of course, this whole area is designated an Important Bird Area.
It continues through several more farms and through Jacob’s creek, another long HDD under the municipal area around Scotch Road, and then on through more farmland and increasingly residential areas. Then onto the Shoprite shopping center, under Route 31, and on to the terminus in Pennington.
