Dwain Harkins - Master Mechanic for Union Pipeline attended the May monthly SSRTA Meeting. The Union Pipeline joined the SSRT as a corporate sponsor and also provided a donation to the organization too.
Dwain advised that they will be digging ditches & installing gas
lines on the Kato Road on both sides of the Kato Bridge. They will be
bringing in a large piece of equipment from Texas to help cut through
the rock on the Bloody Skillet side of the Kato Bridge.
Dwain advised that the road will be open for atv/utv usuage Memorial Day Weekend.
The gas company will normally be working 6 days a week and would like
the project to be completed by the end of August or before.
The SSRT is asking it's members to be patient with the gas company
while they are working in this area. Remember, monies from this project
is going towards the Kato Bridge Replacement Project for Snow Shoe
So, please do not climb any dirt banks near the
contruction sites as there could be ditches on the opposite sides. Also,
please do not climb on any equipment. If you see anyone vandalizing
construction equipment, we ask for your help to identify them. Contact
Dwain Harkins immediately with any information or if you have any
questions about the project. His number is: 330-413-4305. Also, please
notify the State Police if you see anything suspious in the area.
The SSRT will also be notifying the Centre County Sheriff's Office so they are also aware of this project too.
The Gas Company will have to shut the township road down in various
locations where the road is narrow. However, this should be for a short
time, hopefully a day or two. They will notify Snow Shoe Township
Supervisors if/when the road will be shut down. Then, Snow Shoe Township
Supervisors will notify the SSRTA. Then, we will post any notifications
of road shut - downs on our web site and face book. So, please check
our web site and face book regularly to keep up to date with the
Thank you SSRTA Officers.
