Ferguson Township Police advise residents and motorists that Penn State's Ag Progress Days will be held through TODAY, August 15, in Rock Springs.

West College Avenue (SR26), Pine Grove Road (SR45) and West Whitehall Road will be extremely congested, especially during rush hours.  Motorists are asked to expect delays and allow extra time for commuting. Using alternate routes is suggested.

In addition, Nixon Road will be closed between West Whitehall Road and Pine Grove Road between 3 and 7 pm daily during Ag Progress Days. Nixon Road access will be maintained only for local residents from Whitehall Road.

Access to the Pine Grove Mills Post Office will be limited to eastbound traffic between 3 and 7 pm during the three-day event.

Ferguson Township Police recognize the potential for significant traffic congestion and back-ups during Ag Progress Days. The Department will provide extra personnel on duty to help manage the congestion, but delays are inevitable.  Please allow more driving time for your commute or, if possible, avoid the area altogether.

Police also remind motorists to be aware of police officers on the roadways directing traffic.  They are there to keep traffic moving and cannot answer questions while on the roads.  Please keep our officers safe by being attentive, slowing down, and not stopping to ask traffic questions.

Motorists with questions may call Ferguson Township Police at (814) 237-1172. Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
