      Exit 32 off 476 ( used to be PA 9, or the Northeast Extension as the locals called it.

      Bear right at the light off the exit on 663 South towards Pennsburg.

      Over the bridge, thorugh the light at the Spinnerstown Rd intersection.

      Left onto Old Plains Road. If you reach the traffic light at Kings Highway you missed the turn.

      Follow Old Plains Rd about 3/4 mile.

      It is on the right, you can't miss it.

      If you reach the end of Old Plains Rd, you went too far.

      High Security at this site now.

      I would call before going there.

      I went there when it was owned by ATC and in the process of being sold it only took 5 minutes for state police to arrive.
