3D Flyover of Proposed PennEast Pipeline project near Lehigh River and Route 33 in PA

This is part of the 3D flyover video series of the PennEast routes. In this installment, we start at Route 78 near the Lehigh River, follow the HDD there, then we proceed on to another HDD, this one emerging in the middle of a Lowes Shopping Center parking lot (!). We continue on showing a very skinny zone between some PADOT facilities and Route 33.

As always, the 400′ survey corridor is in smokey gray, the pipeline 50′ permanent easement line is in red, and the light blue areas are temporary construction zones. There is also a 100′ construction right of way not shown here.

For the record, no, I don’t know how in the world PennEast thinks this is safe or reasonable.  The traffic and lifestyle impacts in this area are going to be horrendous.
