A Great Day in the Town of Lindley,N.Y.

Dignitaries at Rt.15  Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
A view of Lindley,New York  from the new 4 lane Route U.S.15
(Note no exit at Lindley hamlet)
Ribbon cutting ceremony October 8,2013  -11A.M on Northbound Lane of  Route 15  (Town Of Lindley) -(someday to be I 99
Today was a beautiful day for the long awaited opening of 4 lanes of traffic through the Town of Lindley N.Y
        This project has been discussed since plans were made to extend the 4 lane highway to Presho, N.Y. from Painted Post. (That section of the project was completed in 1970- if I recall correctly.) 
         In 1997, Pennsylvania and New York authorities started discussions to continue the 4 lane highway from Presho all the way to Williamsport, Pa. and beyond.
 Today -marked the end of 16 years of planning and  construction.
Lindley residents and travelers along the 5 miles of 2 lanes of traffic from Presho to Lawrenceville can all gave a collective sigh of relief that this 5 miles is finally completed.
On a historical note- In the Wellsboro newspaper archives on line from the Wellsboro, Penna. Green Library is an article stating in 1923, the last 5 miles of concrete to be finished from Presho, Lawrenceville, Penna. was finally completed. This was the last 5 miles to be finished on the north/south route from Buffalo, N.Y. to Washington, D.C.   Today - history was repeated with the completion of these same 5 miles.
Photo credits to Fran Temple   -Thank You 
And a thank you to Bill Canfield and Fran Woodring for attending the Rt. 15 project meetings for 16 years and attempting to  keep the Lindley residents informed.
