Work Begins on Centralia's Graffiti Highway; State Police Enforce


Work began Monday at Graffiti Highway in Centralia.


For years, Centralia's Graffiti Highway has been a popular spot for hikers and off road enthusiasts.  The highway draws onlookers from around the country to see the spray painted highway that closed over 25 years ago and to the see the town that was deserted after the mine fire began.

But most recently, Graffiti Highway has been a problem due to the crowds that have settled on the area during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Over the past three weeks, hundreds of cars were parked near the highway's north and south entrances and even more ATV's were in the area.

But on Monday morning, it seems the owners of the private property are doing something to deter onlookers of the highway.

At daybreak, workers arrived and a bulldozer pushed down one of the hills of dirt on the north end which has allowed tri-axle trucks to haul in dirt which is being piled at the south end.

The are is also being strictly enforced by those working at the site, as Skook News was denied access to the area as soon as we stepped on the property.

Rumors began early Monday that the road was being tore up, and while we have not received confirmation, it appears as if Graffiti Highway will be covered in dirt.

The Pennsylvania State Police from Bloomsburg were also at the site Monday to enforce those parking on each end.

UPDATE: We just received confirmation that the owner's of the property, Pagnotti Enterprises, will be closing Graffiti Highway and covering with dirt.
What are you thoughts?
