Parole Chief: Longer Prison Terms Not Reducing Crime
Green Light for Road Project in Lansdale
Lansdale officials have successfully concluded negotiations for right-of-ways that will allow a major road improvement project to move ahead. What's in the works is rebuilding and realigning parts of Vine Street, Susquehanna Avenue, Derstine Avenue and Wood Street to make it easier for both motorists and pedestrians to get around downtown. None of the right-of-way acquisitions involved significant taking of property and in most cases were less than 20-square-feet. Construction could start as soon as next month.
