South 8th Street Paving Project

The South 8th Street Paving Project has begun.  We will be repaving South 8th from Main Street to the Hampton Inn and replacing ADA ramps and portions of sidewalks.  Our contractors currently have begun replacing crosswalks at 8th and Ann Streets.  This may result in the intersection being temporarily closed to vehicular traffic for the next week.  Repaving will begin after the July 4th weekend, and also may cause temporary street closures.

Your patience during this construction period is greatly appreciated!

Sign the Petition to Scale Back the Expansion of I-80

Stroudsburg is the only town in Pennsylvania that is bisected by Interstate 80.  The highway literally runs through the center of town, cutting Stroudsburg and South Stroudsburg in two.

PennDOT's proposal to expand I-80 will devastate the area, negatively impact the community, encroach on our pristine creek, streams and exceptional value watercourse, and require earthmoving activities (relocating a creek).  It will crush Stroudsburg Borough, the Monroe County seat, and will wreak havoc on local businesses, cutting off accessibility to our thriving downtown Main Street.  Two major hospitals, emergency services and fire companies will have dangerous response times due to the closure of two exits.  Constant Main Street gridlock will be inevitable due to the closing of these exits and South Stroudsburg will be cut off with huge soundwalls.

This project will kill our tax base and lead to an increase in the borough tax, the school tax and the library tax.  This would be devastating to our residents and business owners.
