A 1987 Chrevrolet pickup, a woodstone pizza oven and hotel room furnishings were some of the items the state recently sold from the properties being demolished for the new Mount Rose interchange.
The state Department of Transportation of acquired the Budget Host Inn, the Par-Tee Mini Golf, Mexitaly and other businesses along Camp Betty Washington Road for the upcoming interchange improvement. The furnishings for businesses usually come with an acquisition, but owners can negotiate with the state on what they would like to keep, said Troy Thompson, spokesman for the Department of General Services.
(Mexitaly, by the way, has reopened in a new location not too far away from its former site. It is now open at 2440 E. Market St. in Springettsbury Township.)
PennDOT turned the surplus property over to the state Department of General Services, which sold the items in an online auction, Thompson said. The auction closed on March 21.
It isn’t clear what happened with some items, such as the sailboat and the lighthouse, from a mini-golf course. They were not listed in the auction, and the course appears to be untouched.
