On a related project, I can't believe how cheap the Township and/or Aqua PA are with respect to repaving. They turned the streets in the Winton Ave / E. Marthart / E. Turnbull neighborhood into something you'd see in Iraq. When finished, they paved E. Marthart but only HALF of Winton between Edgehill and Campbell. I don't mean one end of the street, I mean one SIDE of the street. It looks stupid, it's not level, and we're still dodging patches and bumps all over the place. Thank you (NOT) township leadership (Jim McGarrity) and corporate America. Happy 4th.
