Abel Construction, of Mountville, Pa., commenced earthmoving operations on April 29 for the infrastructure construction phase of work at the former Armstrong World Industries complex in Lancaster, Pa. Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster General, and EDC Finance Corporation are collaborating to redevelop the former Armstrong World Industries Liberty Street manufacturing facility in Lancaster City and Manheim Township. This initiative is commonly known as Lancaster’s Northwest Gateway/Armstrong Project and is a vital component to the revitalization of that portion of the city.

The redevelopment site encompasses approximately 47 acres. The college plans to redevelop approximately 27 acres of the site into new athletic facilities. The health system is still considering plans for its portion of the site, which will likely support future advancements in medical education and research.

The former city street grid will be reconstructed in the neighborhood to facilitate the development.
