PennDot Works to Keep Municipalities, Citizens Abreast of Route 51 Upgrades Print E-mail

 

On June 15, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation launched a $15.9 million project to repair Route 51 between Lebanon Church Road and the Liberty Tunnels. Construction will include road milling and resurfacing, signal improvements, drainage enhancements, curb upgrades, bridge repairs, pavement markings, and other critical items. Although road repairs are critical for ensuring that people and goods and can safely reach their intended destinations, it is acknolwedged that construction delays can become a significant headache for time-strapped travellers. PennDot has set up several mechanisms to keep both local officials and the general public informed about this major project, which is scheduled to run through June 2016.  Individuals can view construction information and project time tables electronically here. At the same link, residents will also have a chance to sign up to receive traffic advisories via email. Additionally, an informational hotline will be staffed on weekdays from 8:30AM to 5PM. Inquiries should be directed to 412-533-4602.

Bullying Seminar a Resounding Success Print E-mail

 

Brentwood Borough recognizes that youth bullying is not simply an internal educational problem.  Rather, it is a societal ill that can impact students long after the final bell of the school day rings.  Brentwood has enacted a municipal ordinance that is designed specifically to combat this abusive and harrassing behavior. However, the Borough recognizes that it cannot simply legislate change.  Consequently, officials have partnered with the Brentwood School district to raise awareness of this critical issue.  On May 14th, both organizations jointly sponsored an appearance by former professional wrestler Marc Mero.  A powerful man with a powerful message, Mr. Mero gave a deeply personal presentation to students in grades six through eleven.  His lecture was designed not only to convey information to perpetrators on the effects of their actions but also to encourage victims to reach out for assistance.  For more information, the website of Marc's organization.
