There is construction going on along Route 641 between McAllister Church Road and the Dollar General store in Plainfield.  What is being built there?

Anyone who drives through Plainfield in West Pennsboro Township on Route 641 and looks to the south will likely see large mounds of dirt and heavy construction vehicles busy at work in a field. The area under construction is two lots to the east of the Dollar General store. 

The construction doesn't represent the dawn of a new retail establishment, however. Instead, crews are in the initial stages of creating a fenced-in office building, according to West Pennsboro Township.
