Last time I worked beaver I stayed at Candlewood suites.  It is around 50 a night, call for current pricing, but the staff leaves you alone. Theres a full kitchen thats stocked in your room, a vcr, a full gym down stairs, an honor system pantry, and its near civilization.  The ride from there to the plant is only about 30 minutes.

I have a reservation for the willow inn...8 mins from the plant  54 a night after taxes....if anyone has information on what im walking into it would be appreciated.

I stayed there for one night in 2001.  It was nice, but not the most economical.  It's the place where all the old folks come for Sunday brunch.  They didn't have any internet connection at the time, and dial-up wouldn't work.  I was going through nukeworker withdrawal.
Of course, it is close.  Just don't stay in West Virginia.  There are some places close to the plant, but you don't want to stay there - not int the motels or the towns themselves.  To quote Tammy Piscatelli from Last Comic Standing, "a terrorist will kill you, but a hillbilly will KEEP you."

PLEASE BE ADVISED SHIPPINGPORT BRIDGE WORK WILL BE IN PROGRESS DURING THE OUTAGE.

What that means is you are much better off staying towards the Airport and using Green Garden Road or The "World Famous Midway" exit.  Staying above or using Rt 68 is bad becasue there will only be one lane open over the bridge.

I will post anymore updates as I hear them.

Construction starst 3/9/09 and lasts abaht a yer

Here is the latest on the shippingport bridge:

PennDOT has started the Shippingport Bridge project.  The project currently has a schedule through 12/31/2011.  It is expected there will be some single lane closures using flagman during the daylight hours.  They will minimize any closures before 08:00 and after 17:00 to allow easy access in and out of the plant during high traffic periods.  They intend to have alternating one lane closure during the daylight hours ( after 08:00 and before 17:00 ) which would limit congestion during our "high volume" vehicle periods.  However, they also plan to begin permanent one lane closures beginning on Wednesday March 18th through April 17th.  They will alternate traffic in a single lane 24/7 with traffic lights.  PennDOT will not have single lane operations from 05:00 to 08:00 and from 17:00 to 20:00 during the outage period beginning April 18th through May 10th.

I've been working as a contractor here for a while on another project and found a place by Robinson, about 20-25 min west of plant a little past the airport. The area has a lot of things to do, eat, shop, etc.
The rates are $50 for 30 days $59 for 20 days, not sure how much for less than that.
It's an extended stay hotel which has the kitchen in it with stove, microwave, full-size refrigerator and has a few sets of dishes. Also has high-speed internet and decent size laundry area but most importantly, it's clean.

UPdate for those of you working over teh summer and possibly coming back for the fall Unit 2 outage:


To all,

The Shippingport Bridge Project continues to proceed as scheduled and the next phase of the project involves the removal and replacement of the three-span portion of the bridge over FENOC's walkway as we enter the plant. Jersey barriers have been placed under the bridge and a covered walkway will start to be erected beginning Monday (6/1/09) as PennDOT workers begin to work above our entrance area. The construction of the protective walkway is an approved OSHA design which will have interior lighting for our safety. The walkway will protect us from any potential falling debris during construction. PennDOT will have flagmen posted in the area  during the construction of the protective walkway to control traffic when required. The longest pedestrian traffic closing is expected to be no more that 5 minutes.  As always, safety is our most important concern for everyone. So please look twice when entering the area and obey any safety rules when entering or leaving the area.

Shippingport Bridge Update: 9/24/09

The work on the Shippingport bridge continues in a very safe and productive manner. As our outage approaches, we can expect some changes to the current arrangement with Swank Construction and their schedule.

Swank Construction will be completing work on the three-span portion of the bridge by 10/9/09. This portion of the bridge spans over our entrance way into the plant. Swank will be moving their efforts northward towards the main bridge span on 10/9/09.  The main span is considered the portion which spans over the river. Painting will begin under our section  of the bridge on 9/28/09 and likewise finish on 10/9/09. The painters will be operating in an enclosed area under the bridge.

Swank will continue to work on the bridge with single lane operation during the outage with some additional arrangements. They include:

·Flagging of Traffic During Peak Hours - Swank will provide a certified flagman equipped with a cellular phone to manually operate the traffic lights during peak hours, Monday through Friday from 6:00 AM to 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.  Manually operating the traffic lights during the above mentioned days and times will ensure that no delays are experienced by FENCO employees, arriving to or departing from our facility. 

·Emergency Services Access During Peak Hours - Swank’s Flagmen will be equipped with a cell phone for emergency communication with FENOC   to ensure that emergency service vehicles have unimpeded travel through the work zone.  Prior to any flagging operations we will provide FENCO with contact information. In the event of emergency FENOC will contact the emergency phone and instruct our flagmen on the direction of travel by the emergency vehicles, to ensure constant flow of traffic in the appropriate direction. 

·Coordination/Communication with Borough Flagmen - An open line of communication will be available between Swank's Flagmen and the Borough Flagmen via 2-way radios to provide proper traffic flow in and out of the plant during peak hours.

I tried the Beaver Falls Motel.  Bad mistake.  They did not charge us tax on the first 30 days. But did charge tax for weekly after the first 30 days.  His daily rate is $64.  The room is well worth $30/night.  You get a thermostat in the room.  It doesn't work, but you can set it for what you would like.  I set mine for 75 when room temperature dipped to 60 (30 outside).  At 20 outside, I was at 55(thermostat 75).  Complaints were met with empty promises.  One of the techs had his shower stop up on a Friday.  The owner had him shower in another room for 4 days because he didn't want the expense of a weekend plumbing call.  The room cleaning was from about 0900 to 1500.  Nightshift workers had to fend for themselves.  On the other hand, they do respect your "Do Not Disturb" sign.  Inspect the room for yourself.  Be wary of the rooms with adjoining doors.  You hear everything through them and that can be difficult if you want to sleep.  One of the techs complained of excessive noises from the hourly room rentals without resolution. Weekly rates were $280 ($305 taxed).

Try the Alpine Inn/Lark Inn.  The guy who owns them is nice and holds over cleaning crew for nightshift.  It has better rates.  He is sometimes hard to reach. (That's why I was in the BF Inn.) The difference is well worth the wait. The weekly rate was $240/week untaxed.  Both are about 30 minutes to site through Chippewa.

Another option is Willows in Industry (5 minutes to the plant).  He will do ~$390/week if I remember correctly.

Moon is about 30 minutes away in the other direction.  Traffic on Green Garden Road can be tedious sometimes.  You can get rooms for $226/week to $350/week.
