The I-83 Master Plan recommended a new interchange — Exit 26 at SR 921/Canal Road —to alleviate area congestion and improve traffic flow at Exit 24 to the south (SR 238/Church Road; Emigsville) and Exit 28 to the north (SR 297/North Susquehanna Trail; Strinestown). 

If Exit 26 is approved by PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the new interchange will take several years to fund and build. Meanwhile, development pressure in the vicinity of future Exit 26 will likely intensify. 

The four adjacent municipalities—Conewago, East Manchester, and Manchester townships and Manchester Borough—are proactively preparing a land use plan for the Exit 26 impact area (parcels within a five-minute drive of the proposed interchange or other areas identified by the steering committee). The plan may affirm current zoning or recommend revisions in one or more municipalities. The plan’s recommendations would be implemented through municipal zoning updates. 

Snow and Ice Ordinance Section

All sidewalks shall be kept in an ice- and snow-free condition at all times. No notice will be given. Tickets can be issued. It is suggested to wait until after the snow plows come through to shovel your sidewalks because you do have 24 hours after the weather event ceases. If the snow plow pushes snow back onto your sidewalks, you are expected to clear them. Please do not shovel snow onto the streets to prevent this from happening. Sometimes it is inevitable and please remember that clearing the snow is a team effort between the Township, State, residents and businesses. Below is a helpful diagram on how to clear your driveway. Thank you.
