PennDOT ready for Mother Nature’s worst

December 9, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Just as the weather is beginning to turn frightful comes the news that PennDOT District 10 Jefferson County Maintenance is ready for Mother Nature’s worst, with salt and anti-skid and snow plows.

The annual PennDOT plow inspection in last month went very well, said Paul Koza Jr., P.E., county maintenance manager.

Everything is ready to go, except for a few trucks that are receiving routine maintenance, Koza said.

All trucks are stationed at the county stockpile locations in Punxsutawney, Brookville, Emerickville, Brockway and Ringgold.

PUNXSUTAWNEY —

In this corner, Punxsutawney Phil; in the opposite corner, science.
But Punxsutawney Area Middle School students taking part in a program to track the growth of tulips in various parts of the world — and taking into consideration the onset of spring — believe their hometown hero will emerge victorious.

“They think they will be right along with Phil” and his Feb. 2 prognostication, whatever it may be, said PAMS fifth-grade teacher Jeff Kuntz.
