|During the summer of 2006, Route 30 East has been widened to 5 lanes.
This stretches from Stouffer Ave out to very close to Fayetteville.|
|Also during the summer of 2006, much land is currently being developed.
The Gablers sold much of their land on the north end of town. Walker
road has been changed. Many businesses are now being built between 5th
Ave. and Walker Road. We now have a Fuddruckers and will soon be
getting Target, a new Giant, a new Staples, Circuit City, and many others.|
|Remember the old Stanley building? Well, it doesn't exist
anymore. The school district bought the land and built a new
administration building and a football practice field.|
|If you haven't been to Chambersburg for a while, you won't recognize it.
Many new housing developments, hotels, and restaurants have been built.
We now have Applebees, Cracker Barrel, etc.|
|Remember the Hal Lowry Ford building? They built a new building
on the right-side of route 30 as you are going towards Fayetteville. The
old building has been torn down and a Ryan's steak house has been built there.|
|Where's the water? Cowans Gap was drained for repairs to the
dam. It reopened during the summer of 2003.|
|Letterkenney Army Depot has gone through some major changes. Most of
it has been shut down and those jobs moved elsewhere. The guard shacks
have been torn down and you can now drive through the depot. Be careful
though, speed limit is 35mph and depot security is strict about this!|
