Have you seen that a large patch of Swanson Street between Target and ShopRite has been repaved? You may remember that we recently brought you the news that Adventurer’s Mini Golf was coming in May to 38 Jackson St. in Whitman and with it potential improvements to the street experience on Swanson Street.
According to Councilman Mark Squilla, those plans are in the works and this paving is part of a bigger plan.
“I have been meeting with the Streets Department and Conrail on street improvements and a master plan for Swanson [Street],” Councilman Squilla wrote in an email. He also mentioned that potholes will continued to be filled along Swanson Street and that they look to hopefully re-stripe the stretch south of Snyder Avenue.
Check out the before and after pictures:
The paving of this large patch, which used to house a few yellow oil drums as a caution to drivers, is a welcome sight for those traveling in and around the Snyder Plaza and a sign of the improvements to come.
