Why this petition matters

Graffiti Highway located in Centralia, PA off of Route 61

This 0.74mi long stretch of road was abandoned in 1993 after it had suffered substantial damage due to the underground coal mine fires that have been burning for at least the past 50 years.

The Graffiti Highway was a very popular tourist attraction due to the graffiti (duh) and the nearby ghost-town of Centralia.

However in April 2020, Pagnotti Enterprises (Land Owner) ordered 400 dump trucks full of dirt be dumped onto the Graffiti Highway, and later have seeds planted in the soil to grow trees.

The reason why the Graffiti Highway was covered is due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These dirt mounds were placed here to deter tourists permanently.

I am devastated to see this beautiful attraction go to waste and never be restored. I really wish there was a less permanent solution to this issue.

Our goal is to restore this historical monument to its previous glory.
