Directions

 IMPORTANT NOTICE TO TRAVELERS:

There is a lot of road work taking place in Middletown through late October, 2016 with major paving projects and a bridge replacement on 230. Portions of both major arteries through town – PA 230, Main Street and PA 441, Union Street – will have sections closed. These closed areas are shifting as work progresses, so we cannot post detours here. Official detour signs through town are posted, please follow them closely, and allow extra travel time  to reach the M&H station.

Bus & RV drivers should take extra note as some of the detours will take you onto side streets which are narrower and may have more difficult turns.
