Harrisburg, PA – With National Work Zone Awareness Week occurring March 23-27, Acting PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards today joined representatives from the Associated Pennsylvania Constructors (APC), the American Traffic Safety Services Organization (ATSSA), and various traffic-control companies for an event in Harrisburg calling on motorists to drive safely in work zones and be mindful of the people behind the cones.
To complement the awareness week, PennDOT also announced its #Slow4Zone social media campaign, which spotlights department employees and reminds drivers why it is important to pay attention and slow down in work zones.
“Work on our roadways is essential to keep people and commerce flowing, but drivers need to remember that it isn’t just equipment that they see in work zones – there are people,” Acting Secretary Richards said. “Work zones may be a temporary inconvenience, but these workers deserve our full attention and safest driving.”
Preliminary PennDOT data shows that 24 people were killed in work-zone crashes in 2014, eight more than in 2013. Since 1970, 85 PennDOT employees have died in the line of duty.
Additionally, the same data there were 1,841 crashes in work zones last year, a slight decrease from the 1,851 crashes in 2013. Over the five-year period, there were 10,586 work-zone crashes and 128 fatalities in those crashes.
In addition to crash data from police reports, PennDOT monitors work-zone safety with internal reports. In 2014, there were 131 reported intrusions in PennDOT work zones, 92 of which nearly caused injury to employees or caused damage to equipment, and 21 of which caused fleet or equipment damage. Of those intrusions, 18 resulted in injuries to PennDOT employees.
As of March 10 this year, there have been seven work-zone intrusions, with one resulting in employee injury, four causing damage to vehicles or equipment and two causing no damage or injuries.
In addition to driving safely to protect highway workers, state law requires drivers to increase their visibility and obey work-zone speed limits. Drivers who don’t turn on their headlights in posted work zones face a $25 fine. Also, motorists caught driving 11 mph or more above the posted speed limit in active work zones automatically will lose their license for 15 days.
To further underscore the importance of the lives of people working on the state’s transportation system, through the awareness week PennDOT’s #Slow4Zone initiative will feature employees from across the state who have witnessed or been injured in work-zone crashes, or who have a message for motorists. The campaign emphasizes that each employee is a mother, youth mentor or family member who wants to get home safely each day.
To view the employee testimonials in the campaign visit the “Work Zone” information center at www.JustDrivePA.com. Join the discussion on social media by using #Slow4Zone in posts.
Representatives from Flagger Force, Beth’s Barricades, Protection Services Inc., Rae-Lyn Enterprises and Guidemark Inc. also participated in today’s event.

HARRISBURG – To help preserve and protect the history of Tioga County for generations to come, Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga/Bradford/Potter) today announced that a $4,000 state grant has been awarded to the Tioga County Historical Society located in Wellsboro.
“The Tioga County Historical Society is an important organization that achieves a great deal with very limited resources. I applaud them on their many great works and on applying for and being awarded this grant funding,” said Baker. “The preservation of our county history and efforts to educate today’s citizenry about it are important goals the Tioga County Historical Society works hard to meet. I know this funding will go a long way in helping its members continue their mission.”
The funding, from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission’s Cultural and Historical Support Grant Program, was announced this week.
The grant program is designed to direct funding to strengthen Pennsylvania museums; provide general operating support to museums and official county historical societies; allow applicants to determine and describe how funds will be used; and achieve geographic balance in distribution.
The Tioga County Historical Society is dedicated to preserving local history through the collection of various historical records and artifacts. The society also runs the Ladd Genealogy Library and offers various search services.

State College, PA – With signs in place, work will begin Monday eastbound and westbound on a roadway improvement project along Route 322 (Mt Nittany Expressway). The work zone stretches from the Boalsburg interchange to the I-99 interchange at Innovation Park.
On Monday, March 23, the contractor will close the left passing lanes in each direction at the Oak Hall interchange. Through July, bridge work will take place at this location. Lane shifts, reduced speed of 45 miles per hour, and an eleven-foot lane-width restriction will be in effect.
Later this spring, work along the Route 322 main line will get underway. PennDOT will issue an update on work activity prior to any changes. Through the 2015 construction season, overall work will include patching, base repair, paving, bridge and deck repairs, and miscellaneous items. Repairs will improve the ride quality of the roadway surface and allow the structures to remain in service for years to come.
Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. of State College is the contractor on this $5.1 million job. The project was made possible last year by ACT 89 funding. All work is weather and schedule dependent.
Drivers should proceed with caution through the work zone and be prepared for construction vehicles entering and exiting the roadway. PennDOT reminds motorists to drive with caution through work zones, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

Thompson Introduces Medical Evaluation Parity for Service Members Act
Bipartisan, Bicameral Bill will Provide Military with Mental Health Assessments
Senator Toomey Newest Senate Sponsor
Washington, D.C.—Today, U.S. Representatives Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-05) and Tim Ryan (OH-13) introduced H.R. 1465, the Medical Evaluation Parity for Service Members (MEPS) Act. The bill, which has strong bipartisan support and the support of a large number of military and mental health advocacy groups, will help the military identify behavioral health issues and improve suicide prevention by instituting a mental health assessment for all incoming military recruits.
“According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 22 of our military veterans commit suicide every day — one every 65 minutes, to be precise,” said Thompson. “The Medical Evaluation Parity for Service Members Act will ensure that service members are mentally fit to serve our nation by establishing a mental health assessment at the time recruits are first joining the military. These brave men and women deserve our complete support and we must do everything that we can to ensure they receive necessary treatment during their service and transition back into civilian life,” Thompson added.
“It is heartbreaking to see the staggering number of veterans who are suffering from PTSD and TBI in our country,” said Congressman Ryan. “Our military makes sure every serviceman and woman is physically fit for duty, and this legislation will ensure that they are also mentally fit. It will also give us a better baseline to measure any potential mental harm they may have incurred during their duty. These men and women put their lives on the line every day in the service of our nation, it is our duty to do everything in our power to guarantee they return home safely, both physically and mentally.”
“The American Psychological Association has a long-standing commitment to promoting health and well-being among military personnel, veterans, and their families. We support the Medical Evaluation Parity for Servicemembers Act and applaud the efforts of Rep. Thompson and Rep. Ryan to strengthen DoD’s prevention, assessment, and treatment capacities for those wishing to serve our nation, those who are currently serving, and those who have served,” said Heather O’Beirne Kelly, PhD, American Psychological Association Lead for Military and Veterans’ Policy.
This bipartisan, bicameral MEPS Act will institute a preliminary mental health assessment at the time recruits are first joining the military. An Army study confirmed the need to address mental health issues in a timely manner, finding that “nearly one in five Army soldiers enter the service with a psychiatric disorder, and nearly half of all soldiers who tried suicide first attempted it before enlisting.” Additionally, the Journal of the American Medical Association found that a large percentage of suicides in the military were individuals who had never been deployed in a combat role. The MEPS Act brings mental health to parity with physical health and will ensure that our incoming troops are both physically and mentally fit to serve.
Thompson’s MEPS Act has a companion bill in the Senate, which was introduced by Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Martin Heinrich (D-NM). Pennsylvania Senator Patrick Toomey (R-PA) is also a co-sponsor of the Senate legislation.
"I remain deeply concerned about the high instances of suicide and PTSD among service members and veterans,” said Sen. Toomey. “That’s why I am working with Rep. Thompson and Sen. Portman to improve the way the military identifies mental health issues for our service members and veterans. The MEPS Act calls for baseline mental health assessments which start before recruits join the military and continue throughout a service member’s career. It is important and helpful to have a well-informed background to try to make sure we’re properly caring for the men and women who have put on the uniform of this country.”
Support for the Medical Evaluation Parity for Service Members (MEPS) Act: Veterans of Foreign Wars, Military Officers’ Association of America, Reserve Officers’ Association, National Military Family Association, Association of the U.S. Navy, the National Guard Association of the United States, the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States, the American Psychological Association, and the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.

The Potter/ Tioga Pennsylvania Maple Weekend, held the last weekend of March, is a true tribute to all things maple.
Now in its tenth year, the Maple Weekend is a “traveling festival” that allows visitors to observe tree tapping, sugar boiling, and other maple-related activities in Potter and Tioga counties.

GAME COMMISSION PLANTS SEED FOR ENVIRONMENTAL LEARNING
The Pennsylvania Game Commission again is helping students learn about the vital role trees play in the environment.
The “Seedlings for Schools” program provides tree seedlings to classrooms so students can plant them as part of projects to improve wildlife habitat.
Orders placed as part of the “Seedlings for Schools” program are being accepted through March 27. To order, visit the agency’s website, www.pgc.state.pa.us, and click on the “Seedlings for Schools” icon.
There is no charge to schools that participate in this project. The seedlings are provided by the Game Commission’s Howard Nursery and shipping costs are offset by donations.
The program provides two levels of involvement based on the grade levels.
“Seedlings for Your Class” is primarily for pre-K and elementary students. As part of this program, the Game Commission provides a classroom or one grade level with enough seedlings for each student to take a seedling home to plant. Seedling choices are white spruce, mixed oak and flowering crabapple. A teachers guide comes with the seedlings and can be accessed through the website.
“Seedlings to Develop Habitats” is primarily for middle- and high-school students. As part of this program, the Game Commission provides a variety of seedlings to students who might use them to improve habitat on school or community grounds or along streams, or to create tree nurseries or environmental areas.
Seedlings come in bundles of 25, and will be shipped directly to schools by UPS during the last two weeks of April, depending on weather and the number of orders received.
Once seedlings arrive, it is important to keep them moist, said Annetta Ayers, superintendent of the Game Commission’s Howard Nursery.
Seedlings should be handed out to students with their roots in plastic bags with moist shredded newspaper, or with the seedlings planted in juice or milk cartons for transplanting at home, Ayers said.
Information on how to plant the seedlings and other educational materials will be provided with seedlings.
More information about the program can be found on the Game Commission’s website, or by contacting Theresa Alberici at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The “Seedlings for Schools” program is made possible through generous donations by the Wildlife for Everyone Endowment Foundation, Mealey’s Furniture, the Pennsylvania Forestry Association Jim Stiehler Memorial Fund, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and the National Wild Turkey Federation.
Individuals and groups wishing to donate to the program can send checks to the Wildlife for Everyone Endowment Fund, which maintains the account for donations. Be sure to indicate the donation is for the Game Commission’s “Seedlings for Schools” program. Donations can be mailed to the Wildlife for Everyone Endowment Foundation, 341 Science Park Road, State College, PA 16803.
