Bypass Project Forces Lebanon County Home To Move — June 14 2011

LEBANON COUNTY, Pa. — A house at the intersection of Routes 897, 419, and 501 in Schaefferstown, Lebanon County, was moved Wednesday.

The house sat in the way of construction on the Schaefferstown Bypass, a $9 million project that is expected to start this summer.

Starting around 9 a.m. Wednesday, the home was spun around and moved back 50 feet into a field.

PennDOT paid for the move because the owners wanted to keep their home instead of it being torn down.

A Berks County company, Wolf, moved the home. They also moved Alexander Hamilton’s home through New York City.
