I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude and appreciation for all who assisted with the incident on Rt. 222 in Maiden Creek Township on Wednesday, November 19th. When a major incident such as this occurs on the 222 artery in northern Berks it is very difficult to keep traffic moving on the smaller side roads and through Blandon and Fleetwood. PennDot representatives were on scene relatively early to help coordinate the detouring of the south bound traffic which helped to alleviate some of the headaches we had to deal with. I certainly do not want to miss anyone, but I wish to thank everyone who responded and assisted:
Spring Township (85)
Trexlertown (Lehigh 25)
Without your help and willingness to give of your time, we never could have gotten through the mess in the relative ease with which it was accomplished.
Again, a million thanks to all. Stay safe...
