It’s spring – the birds are chirping, the temperature has finally risen above 50, and – of course – construction zones are everywhere.
Four of the major projects in the Valley are:
Route 54 through Danville
Route 11 into Northumberland from Danville
The Selinsgrove bridge work
Mifflinburg work on Route 45
That’s a lot. But how much do they affect your commute?
The Route 11 work does cause a litle hold-up heading into Norry, but traffic does seem to flow – it appears to be the same way with the Route 54 work, though traffic does stop frequently near the light at 11 and 54.
One zone I’ve heard horror stories about is the bridge work in Selinsgrove – people are being delayed – in some cases – over an hour in their journeys.
I haven’t heard about Mifflinburg, though apparently that’s a bad one too.
So now I ask you – what have you seen? What are your tips for getting through them?
I went to a special ceremony at the Montandon American Legion Tuesday night honoring five area veterans in need and gifting them with $1,000 just in time for the holidays.
It was very touching and a very positive experience.
As these additional photographs will show, you can tell they were military vets due to their incredible posture and at-attention stance, even in a casual atmosphere.
Here’s some extra photos:
The presentation came after a beautiful ceremonycalled “Post Eternal,” which is held during the December monthly meeting each year, according to Dale Yount, the Judge Advocate for the Motandon Legion (and pictured in the first photo in the Legion hat).
The ceremony honors those members of the Legion that have passed away in the last year.
