PUNXSUTAWNEYâ€” Punxsutawney Phil predicts when spring will begin, the Big Run Peepers tell us when it has begun, but it's not until the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) orange barrels and flaggers show up that we know spring is here for real.
Pennsylvania's Work Zone Safety Awareness Week marked the unofficial start of the road construction season, said Shawn Houck, PennDOT District 10 Safety Press officer.
BIG RUN â€” Big Run Borough Council agreed to assist the McClure Cemetery Association with paving and maintenance during Monday's council meeting.
Tom Berryhill, member of the McClure Cemetery Association, said there was a ditch that needed cleaned out, and the road needs oiled and to be chipped or paved.
Bob Buffington, former council member, said he believed an ordinance already exists that indicates the borough will take care of the cemetery and the road.
"We considered it to be a borough street and took care of the plowing during the winter," Buffington said.
