Directions to our facility:
You’ll want to use 610 Morgantown Road, Reading, PA 19611 – NOT 621 Brentwood Drive.
610 Morgantown Road will take you directly across the street from Brentwood Drive.
(Unfortunately, due to the GPS satellite systems, if you use the 621 address you will end up in a residential area two towns away.)
Directions from Philadelphia International:
Use 95 South (Approx. 5.5 miles) to 476 North (Approx. 16.5 miles) to 76 West (Approx. 33 miles) to 76 wests Turnpike to 176 North (Approx. 8 miles) to Route 10 North (Morgantown Road), follow for approximately 13.5 miles. Brentwood Drive will be on your right. GPS usually sends people on smaller roads with lots of traffic lights. This will add as much as an additional hour onto what should be a 1.5 hour trip.
