Cell Tower – Balloon Visibility Test November 13th

SBA Tower is interested in installing a cell tower on Swarthmore College property in Nether Providence Township, off of Avondale Road near the I-476 overpass. A balloon test is going to be performed on November 13th from 8 AM to 10 AM where a balloon, similar to a weather balloon, will be raised to the peak of the proposed tower. A Township representative will take photos from various points surrounding the tower to determine from where the tower will be visible. The locations will include:

  • Callender Lane (including the area near the steps heading down toward Avondale)
  • Several points along Avondale Road
  • Oak Knoll Drive
  • Copples Lane
  • Marlyn Lane
  • Barry Lane
  • Henry Lane

Please contact the Township at 610-566-4516 or at dgrady@netherprovidence.org if you would like to add a location that is not listed here.
