Steinwehr Avenue continues to be a one-way road during the day, up to its intersection with South Washington Street in downtown Gettysburg. This view was taken facing northeast at approximately 5:00 PM on Thursday, April 14, 2011.

If you have visited Gettysburg this month, you’ve likely been subject to the number of road closings that will be extending on into the summer months. For locals, we hope that you have perfected the various detours around these closed roads. Today, we’ll take a look at the continued work that is part of the Steinwehr Avenue improvement project.
