Found it! Actually, I found it a while ago, but I wanted to come back for photos of the area. Of course, I had to pick a miserable rainy day. This is a pretty bleak spot anyway, but it's close to my house so I just had to run up and check for the marker. It is in good condition and was easy to find because my GPSr brought me within a few feet of it.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:

Reference mark 5 recovered in good condition. The witness post no longer exists.

(Recovered on April 21, 2003)

This reference mark (which is part of triangulation station LY2714 “ROAR 2”) is about 1.35 miles east along Elmhurst Blvd from the intersection with Lake Scranton Rd. The historic description leads reliably to the site except that the witness sign no longer exists. At the station mark my Garmin GPSmap76 receiver indicated 4.6 feet from the NGS datasheet coordinates. The disk is in very good condition, well exposed, and the stamped designations are legible. ~Rich in NEPA~
