Upper Moreland gets $575,000 state grant for Willow Grove Interchange Area Intersection

(Apr 21, 2021)

HARRISBURG, April 21 – Rep. Nancy Guenst, D-Montgomery/Phila., announced today that Upper Moreland Township has been awarded $575,000 in grant money through the Commonwealth Financing Authority Multimodal Transportation Fund Program to support improvements at the Willow Grove Interchange Area Intersection. The grant money will be used to improve two intersections surrounding the PA Turnpike Willow Grove Interchange. Blair Mill Road will be widened along the northbound approach to Easton Road to lengthen the right turn lane by 400 feet and 500 feed of sidewalk will be constructed to complete a gap in sidewalk connectivity. Commerce Avenue will be redesigned and widened to include two eastbound lanes leading into two left-turn lanes where Commerce Road intersects Maryland Road. This would be complimented by a redesign and widening of Maryland Road to two northbound lanes to receive the turning traffic. This project will also replace a structurally deficient bridge on Maryland Road which is vital for trucks going to and from a UPS distribution center. “The SEPTA exchange in Upper Moreland Township needs safety upgrades, and this money will help keep local taxes down as the township continues investing into the safety of the location,” Guenst said. “I congratulate the township on this well-deserved award, and I am dedicated to partnering with local officials to make further improvements in the Read more

STATEWIDE OPENING DAY OF TROUT SEASON IS THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 3

(Apr 01, 2021)

STATEWIDE OPENING DAY OF TROUT SEASON IS THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 3 https://www.media.pa.gov/pages/fish-and-boat-commission-details.aspx?newsid=379 ?HARRISBURG, Pa. (April 1) – Excitement is in the air for Pennsylvania’s statewide Opening Day of Trout Season on Saturday, April 3! The start time is 8:00 a.m. “Trout fishing in the spring is among Pennsylvania’s greatest outdoor traditions and anglers are gearing up for one of the most highly anticipated days of the year,” said Tim Schaeffer, PFBC Executive Director. “After a long winter and a very challenging year, we’re all looking for fun, safe, and affordable ways to get outside, relax, and spend time with our families. Trout fishing is right at the top of the list for people of all ages.” Anglers are reminded that this Saturday’s opening day is a single, statewide event for all 67 counties. This change was implemented in 2021 to provide anglers with two more weeks to enjoy trout fishing statewide, reduce travel associated with multiple opening days, and minimize overcrowding on many popular waterways to allow anglers to comply with social distancing guidelines associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. To participate in trout fishing, anglers ages 16 and older must obtain a Pennsylvania fishing license and a trout permit. Licenses and permits are available using the FishBoatPA mobile app, online at Read more

DEP Advances Actions to Support Electric Vehicle Use Statewide

(Feb 19, 2021)

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced its latest actions to help expand electric vehicle use statewide: more than $936,000 in grant funding for projects to install 16 more fast chargers in high-traffic areas, the start of a draft rulemaking to make electric vehicles more readily available to consumers, and the release of a booklet on the benefits and basics of these zero emission vehicles. “ Our transportation decisions affect Pennsylvania today and tomorrow. We can turn in the direction of healthier air quality and slow down climate change by switching to electric vehicles, whether we're government officials, business owners, school administrators, community leaders, or individual consumers, ” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell. “DEP is committed to supporting this choice by increasing public knowledge of electric vehicles, making it easier for consumers to find electric models, and helping to expand charging infrastructure.” Transportation generates 47 percent of nitrogen oxide and 21 percent of carbon dioxide emissions in Pennsylvania. Carbon dioxide emissions are the leading cause of climate change, and nitrogen oxides contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone, which affects the health of children, older people, people with lung diseases such as asthma and emphysema, and people who work or are active outdoors.
