Heavy traffic expected in western Clinton County
KEVIN RAUCH/THE EXPRESS
Western Clinton County, particularly Chapman Township, will see much heavier than normal traffic as the Williams pipeline being completed for Transco will bring laborers and materials to the area for the majority of the remainder of the year. Summerson Mountain will be the location of the heaviest travel as an estimated minimum of 800 dump trucks hauling materials have begun operations. Delays are expected for anyone traveling up Summerson Mountain Road but the Transco traffic will cease each day to allow the safe travel of school busses. It won’t be a quick trip up the steep mountain road for the trucks hauling stone, pipe and other construction materials up the descent. In addition to the uptick in vehicle traffic, an estimated 300 workers of various operations will be working during the installation of the pipeline.
