Forewarned Is Forearmed

Let's see now, there are how many ways for people living in Forks (and north of Forks and on College Hill) to get to downtown Easton and/or New Jersey? Did you say THREE? Right! Well, this is going to be the Summer and Fall from hell fellow drivers, for according to Edward Sieger's article in today's Express Times, Cattell Street will be undergoing major repairs by the City of Easton and then by PennDot for a long time, from before July (for the City work) to November. The work must be done. We should all begin taking our extra doses of B-complex and St. John's Wort as soon as the snow melts. Oh, and don't forget to allow yourself an extra 1/2 hour or so for sitting in traffic. Bring a book.

I just took a drive to see the accused PINE TREES and indeed confimed a line of sight impairment while headed west. Whereas heading east, there is a house making the same impairment. This leads me to wonder, why (with so much frontage on Bushkill creek)was the bridge not relocated at the time of reconstruction?

Looks like the hoopla over reducing the speed limit or cutting trees was "much ado about nothing" since the bridge opened yesterday (3/14/05) according to Russ Flanagan of the Express Times.

Here's a link to yesterday's Express Times article about the opening of the bridge.

And, the Morning Call's Joe Nixon wrote (3/16/05) a bit more detail of the HOW. Seems PennDot now feels a sign (warning of the intersection) will do the trick. The trees are spared. Certificates of Occupancy can now be issued (in the Palmer development.)
