Gas-drilling company's use of Pa. roads curtailed

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has suspended two permits for Chesapeake Appalachia on two Bradford County roads until repairs are made.

The permits for Chesapeake Appalachia LLC to move drilling trucks and other equipment over state Routes 1029 and 1041 in Bradford County are suspended because of the company's "failure to deal with severe damage to the roadways," according to a press release issued by PennDOT.

Chesapeake was granted a permit to put heavy trucks and equipment on these roads, known locally (state Route 1029) as Lake Road, North Rome Road or Macafee Road in Wysox, Rome, Sheshequin and Litchfield townships, and (state Route 1041) as James Street in North Towanda, Wysox and Sheshequin townships.
