Norfolk Southern Train Derailment in East Palestine, Ohio

Many residents of New Sewickley Township have reached out to me over the past several days inquiring about water and air quality in the township as a result of the train derailment.

The Beaver County Commissioners met with Governor Josh Shapiro, PEMA Director Randy Padfield, and Acting Secretary of the DEP Richard Negrin.  Assurances were made from these governmental agencies that the data obtained from air monitoring indicated safe levels in the time since the derailment.  Data will continue to be monitored with that information being released to the public.  Water quality in the area of the derailment will also continue to be tested and those results will be provided to the public as well.    

The Beaver County Commissioners have assured our municipalities that there has been nothing to date to indicate air, water, or soil contamination in Beaver County.

Below are some websites to obtain information that may pertain to you:

Route 989 and Freedom Crider Road Roundabout Update

The roundabout intersection at Route 989 and Freedom Crider Road opened for traffic this past fall.  We have received some questions about how to use this intersection, and some complaints about vehicles traveling the wrong direction.  A basic rule of thumb is “All turns are right turns”.  When entering the roundabout, the direction of travel is to the vehicle right, not left.  The vehicle will travel around the intersection until it reaches the destination to exit the roundabout as a right turn.

PennDOT has a video on their website which explains how to navigate the roundabout intersections in Pennsylvania.  If possible, it may be helpful to review this video to better understand the flow through the intersection.

This new traffic pattern will seem confusing until we all become familiar with it, but by using safe driving practices it will create a safer roadway.

Trade Up

Building the Future

Trade Up offers credentials and skills that lead to family-sustaining wages.

A new collaboration with Builders Guild of Pennsylvania and Literacy Pittsburgh offers adults without a high school diploma a chance to earn that credential and seamlessly transition to the Introduction to the Construction Trades pre-apprenticeship course.  Those who successfully complete both programs are guaranteed entry into an apprenticeship in the construction industry.

The construction industry in the 12-county southwestern Pennsylvania region is facing an unprecedented labor market shortage.  At the present there are nearly 52,000 construction jobs, with a projected growth rate of 9.2% over the next 10 years.  At the same time, 30 to 35 percent of current tradespeople are expected to retire over the next few years.
