If you drove by the intersection of Red Lion Road and Philmont Avenue sometime during the summer, you saw construction workers diligently working to get the land ready for the new Wawa gas station that was approved about a year ago.
Recently, however, motorists who travel on that road on a daily basis may have noticed a lack of workers on the site. The development of the site is currently in a holding pattern of sorts. The developer was responsible for clearing out the land, taking care of the underground storm water issues, and creating a right-hand turn lane on Red Lion Road. Now it is up to Wawa to build the actual building and install the fueling stations.
According to the township, Wawa is supposed to start this construction in November.
“(The site) has been this way for a little while now but the construction schedule should begin in November,” said Chris Hoffman, assistant manager of the township.
The developer is also responsible for installing a pedestrian bridge, which will cross the creek on the Self Storage side of Philmont Ave. The building of that structure will be completed in the next couple of weeks as well, according to the township.
