The latest news from the State Capitol 
Supporting Our Veterans – This week, the House unanimously passed a piece of legislation that will be of great benefit our veterans. I am proud to have worked across the aisle with state Rep. Jared Solomon (D-Philadelphia) to move this bill to the state Senate.

Please click here to listen to my thoughts on how House Bill 1231 will help the men and women who serve and have served our country. Please note – the video was recorded before the final House vote was taken.
Protecting local coal jobs…is the goal of legislation I authored that passed the House this week with bipartisan support. House Bill 1333 is the result of a series of meetings I attended in Karthaus that identified this as a major issue to resolve in saving local jobs.

On the Road Again – As you drive around the 75th Legislative District, please take note of the following:

• PennDOT has installed a radar-controlled speed display sign along northbound Route 219 between Route 321 and Jarrett Street, near Finn’s Family Restaurant in Wilcox. The posted speed limit in this area of Route 219 is 35 miles per hour.

The speed display sign will remain on location for approximately four weeks.

• PennDOT) has re-opened the Goshen Road bridge over Lick Run just north of Clearfield. It had been posted with weight restrictions.

• Work to replace the Route 53 bridge over Maplepole Run in Bigler Township will now begin Wednesday, July 12, instead of next week. The bridge detour will use Routes 53, 453 and 729. The detour will now remain in place through Sunday, Aug. 6.

Overall project work will include removal of the old bridge, placement of a new, pre-cast concrete box culvert, paving and guide rail updates.

• Truck traffic traveling the Clearfield-Rockton Highway (Route 322) is being reminded to obey the posted speed limit. PennDOT recently placed a radar-controlled speed display sign, north of the Zion exit to aid in curbing speeding.

The sign faces eastbound traffic and displays the 25-mile-per-hour speed limit for trucks of more than 10,000 pounds gross weight traveling on Route 322. The speed display sign uses radar to determine the speeds of oncoming traffic.

It will remain on location for up to four weeks.

• PennDOT will start replacing the Nicholson Road bridge over Hartshorn Run in Pike Township this Wednesday, July 5. This will require closing the bridge and creating a detour that will be in place until early September.

The project includes excavation, removal of the existing bridge, construction of the new bridge, back-filling, guide rail installation, and paving. The recommended detour will access Routes 3015, 879, 1001, and 2014.

PennDOT will open the new bridge before September 1 if work progress allows.

• Also on Wednesday, PennDOT will begin preservation work on the Clearfield Bypass bridges between Park Avenue and River Road.

Drivers will encounter lane closures along the bypass (Route 879), with two lanes of traffic maintained throughout the project time frame. Motorists should be alert for slow moving traffic in and near the work zones.

Deck repairs, rebar installation, concrete repairs joint sealing, strip seal dam replacement, epoxy surface treatment for bridge decks, paving and guide rail improvements are part of the project, which is expected to be finished by the end of this year.
Attention Anglers - The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will host a Fish for Free day this Tuesday, July 4, to allow anyone (resident or non-resident) to legally fish on all Pennsylvania waterways. No license is required, but all other fishing regulations will still apply.

This is a great way to expose the next generation of anglers to the outdoors. Please click here for more information.
