Senator Killion and Representative Quinn Work with Municipal Officials to Coordinate Pipeline Telephone Town Hall

 After hearing requests from several local municipal officials, Representative Chris Quinn (R-168) and I have organized an expert panel responsible for oversight and regulation of pipeline projects in Pennsylvania to answer community questions about infrastructure projects in our region through a telephone town hall meeting scheduled for next week.

Local municipal officials have reached out to us and asked for help in getting all agencies involved with pipeline projects together in one forum as a way to provide accurate and detailed information to the communities we represent. The exchange of information throughout this process is critical as it will help residents understand what is happening in our communities and also give regulators the opportunity to hear what issues and questions people have related to infrastructure projects in Pennsylvania.

The expert panel will include representatives from the Public Utility Commission, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, and pipeline operators.

The telephone town hall meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2017, at 6 p.m. Many area residents will receive a call at their home inviting them to participate just before the scheduled time for the call. Residents can ensure they receive a call on any number by registering to participate on Senator Killion’s website at http://www.senatorkillion.com/tele-town-hall/  or by calling my Brookhaven office at 610-447-3163.


PennDOT to Celebrate Completion of Newly Built Route 926 Bridge over Brandywine Creek in Chester County

I am happy to announce that today the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and local officials marked the opening of the new Route 926 (Street Road) bridge over the Brandywine Creek in Birmingham and Pocopson townships, Chester County.

PennDOT and project managers worked diligently over the past several months to complete this project in a timely manner so this critical road was open for area residents before the start of a new school year. 

This bridge project cost over $8 million and was completely state funded. This infrastructure project was made possible by the state’s Motor License Fund which is constitutionally restricted to fund state highway expenses.
