Year End Report: PennDOT Delivering Transportation Value

By Leslie S. Richards, Secretary of Transportation



The Wolf Administration is taking seriously its responsibility to care for the transportation assets used by Pennsylvanians every day. Whether it’s improving pedestrian safety on a major corridor, resurfacing a rural roadway or replacing an old bridge, we’re aiming to improve safety and mobility for all users. As we transition from construction season into winter operations, I wanted to update the public on what the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has delivered this year on your behalf.

This year, through the end of October, roughly 2,100 urban and rural roadway miles were paved. In fact, nearly 1,500 of these paved miles are on roads seeing an average of fewer than 5,000 vehicles daily. We also put out contracts to preserve, repair, and replace more than 450 state-owned bridges and 18 locally owned bridges, and completed 20 bridge projects with department forces.

In the PennDOT region including Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Juniata, McKean, Mifflin, and Potter counties, 325 state roadway miles were paved and 48 bridges were repaired or replaced.

Communities across the state can expect even more progress, especially on lower-volume roadways and Interstates, due to a program that Governor Tom Wolf and I announced earlier this year. The Road Maintenance and Preservation, or Road MaP program, dedicates sorely needed investments in roadway maintenance and our Interstates.

The total Road MaP program, $2.1 billion through the 2027-28 fiscal year, will go toward critical highway and bridge projects completed by PennDOT staff and our private sector partners. This program will benefit roads and bridges across the state, but here are examples of what $2.1 billion would translate into if it were fully allocated to one of three categories: paving nearly 21,000 miles of low-volume roadway; paving 2,100 miles of two-lane Interstate; or 1,050 bridge projects worth $2 million.

These are just one year’s examples of how we’re putting Act 89 – the state’s landmark, bi-partisan transportation funding plan – to work. As of mid-November, nearly 3,000 projects have been completed or are underway that were accelerated or made possible by Act 89. More than 4,200 projects are on our Four Year and Twelve Year plans.

At a time when many areas of the nation are struggling with how to make much needed investments in transportation, Governor Wolf has reinforced our commitment to improving pavement smoothness and tackling our long-standing challenge of many bridges in desperate need of repair. We have cut the number of these so-called structurally deficient bridges from a high of 6,034 in 2008 to 3,280 as of October.

I’m very proud of what PennDOT is accomplishing, and I reinforce our commitment to improving the public’s mobility and quality of life as we enhance our large and critical transportation system.

Birthdays and anniversaries in the congregations were recognized during worship. 

A hymn-sing during worship heralded the arrival of a new year. 

Preceding the sacrament of communion, Pastor Tom gave thanks for God’s mighty acts of creation, reminding us what a beautiful world it is. 

He recalled Christ’s work of redemption; his teaching ministry of illustration, forgiveness, love, and grace. We should proclaim his life, death, and resurrection until he comes again, and seek the action of the Holy Spirit in our lives through its gifts of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, and self-control. 

The voice of Jesus is the voice over darkness. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness shall never overcome it. The light is Jesus! 

From our unison prayer: Almighty God, you have shed upon us the new light of your eternal word in Jesus Christ. As this New Year 2018 begins, may the light of Jesus shine forth in our lives. Help us share the divine light of Jesus who came to share our humanity. May his light shine out from our lives and our congregation. Let us be employed for you. 

We freely and heartily yield all things for your pleasure and disposal. Glorious and blessed God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we are yours and you are ours. We are glad to make covenant with you to be your people. Amen.

Galeton Weather Report December 2017

Well the year has rolled around fast. After a rather mild, beautiful Fall we now are in winter--full blast. A month ago Paul from the NWS stopped by for his annual visit. I asked him for his winter prediction. He said "don't quote me, but I think it will be a mild winter". Paul may still be correct , however for the first 10 days winter has started out quite chilly.

December started out rather nice with sunny mild days then on the 8th things changed. It became clear and cold with the first measurable snow on the 8th, one inch. From then on it became and "old fashioned winter" However, on the 18th we saw a 40 degree reading . For the last five days of the month morning readings were below zero with minus 8 on the 28th and minus seven on the 31st. Daytime highs were barely in the teens and midday on the 31st it was 7 above. No change is predicted for the first week of January, except it may even get colder next weekend. We did miss the Lake Erie lake effect snows.

We recorded 1.35" of rain and melted snow. Last year we received 3.84" This year we received 9.3" of snow, last year 19.7" For the year we received 44.59"rainfall which is 1.60" above normal. Snowfall for 2017 was 43.89" which is 10" below normal.

We had 16 days with 1" of snow or more on the ground. The greatest depth was 3" on the 17th. We had one foggy morning and one morning with glaze. The average high for the month is 34 degrees and the average low is 18. The average rainfall and melted snow is 3,05".

Happy New Year

McKean County Fugitive From Justice Arrested In South Carolina

Man being held for extradition

Union Daily Times
 
Kruze Jordan Carpenter-Stewart, 24, 125 Marvin Street, Smethport, Pa., is being held at the Union County Jail while he awaits extradition following his arrest by a deputy with the Union County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident report states that the deputy received a tip that Carpenter-Stewart, who is wanted in Pennsylvania, was at a residence on Jones Ford Road. The report states the deputy went to the residence and spoke with the residents who said their friend was in the bathroom. When the deputy asked for Carpenter-Stewart by name, however, the residents said they did not know anyone by that name. The deputy then showed them a picture of Carpenter-Stewart, the report states the occupants said that was their friend and he was in the home.

The report states the deputy then made contact with Carpenter-Stewart, detained him, and then had dispatch run a check with the National Crime Information Center to see if Carpenter-Stewart was wanted. It states that there was a warrant for Carpenter-Stewart’s arrest showing out of Pennsylvania. The deputy also called the Pennsylvania State Police and confirmed the warrant while dispatch sent a hit confirmation.

The report states that Pennsylvania authorities advised that they would extradite Carpenter-Stewart back to their state. Carpenter-Stewart was placed under arrest and transported to the Union County Jail.

Stewart is wanted on a warrant from McKean County, PA, for child sexual assault offenses. He is accused of aggravated indecent assault of a person less than 16 years of age, corruption of minors and indecent assault of a person less than 16, The crimes allegedly took place this past September in Mt.

Speed Limit Updates for I-80 and I-99 in Region

Clearfield, PA –The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is updating information on reduced speed limits on I-80 and I-99 in the north central region. As of 1 P.M. today, the following is in effect:

Speed limits are restored on I-80 in Clearfield County and up to Exit 161/Bellefonte in Centre County.

Speed limits are restored on I-99 in Centre County.

A reduced speed limit of 45 mph remains in effect on I-80 from exit 161/Bellefonte in Centre County through Clinton County.

PennDOT urges motorists to avoid unnecessary travel but those who must drive should adjust their speeds and following distances in relation to road and weather conditions.

Although PennDOT crews have been treating roadways, the department’s primary goal is to keep roads passable, not completely free of ice and snow.

While PennDOT recommends not traveling during winter storms, motorists can check conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 825 traffic cameras.
