STOP THE SPOTTED LANTERNFLY
These invasive insects pose a significant threat to Pennsylvania agricultural, wine, fruit, hardwood and nursery industries. Property owners can help prevent the spread. During the winter months, check trees for eggs and scrape them into a jar of rubbing alcohol. In early spring (march), banding trees will help to prevent nymphs from crawling up trees to feed. Property owners can also choose to remove or treat the Ailanthus (tree-of-heaven) trees, their preferred host tree. For more info and treatment assistance from the USDA, contact extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly or call (888) 422- 3359. Posted 9/26/19

HEADQUARTERS ROAD BRIDGE PROJECT
In 2018, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) filed a complaint (Case#: 2:18-cv-04508) in US District Court against PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration with regard to the Headquarters Bridge Project, stating they have unlawfully determined that the bridge must be replaced with a new, 2-lane, concrete bridge. The DRN maintains that the existing bridge can be rehabilitated. PennDOT engineers say the deterioration is too severe and there are two options: 1) Construct a new, two-lane bridge. PennDOT would retain ownership and responsibility. 2) Construct a new, one-lane bridge. Tinicum Township taxpayers would be required to take ownership and responsibility. Revised 11/06/19
