New law allows commercial traffic on road through Delaware Water Gap NRA
Route 209 in Bushkill will reopen to certain commercial vehicles. President Donald Trump signed a bill into law Monday by Representative Tom Marino (R-Pennsylvania) that amends the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area Improvement Act.
“When a stretch of Route 209 closed to commercial vehicles in Pike and Monroe Counties, many of my constituents were left in a state of uncertainty,” the congressman said in a Monday statement. “Business owners were fearful of having to close their doors and, with jobs being threatened, homeowners were trying to figure out how to keep food on the table.”
