Dear LMTSD Community,
Dr. Marykay Feeley, our Superintendent of Schools, has announced her intention to retire after 13 years of devoted service to the District. The School Board has immense gratitude for Dr. Feeley’s years of tireless service and dedication to our students, parents, and community. Under her leadership, the District has regularly received state and national recognition for the excellent education we provide to all students, and she has shepherded us through many changes, such as the conversion of Pine Road Elementary School to Grades K-5.
To aid us in our search for a new Superintendent, the Board has engaged Judith Wilson, the former Superintendent of the Princeton, NJ School District, who has served as a consultant to many other districts in their searches. Our intention is to have a new Superintendent selected by September 1, 2018. However, Dr. Feeley is committed to staying on board until a new Superintendent is in place.
I look forward to communicating with you as our search progresses, and, ultimately, to announce the next Superintendent. I appreciate your continued support as we work together to provide superior educational opportunities for our students.
Dr. Murray Cohen
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 16, 2018
Motorists Urged to Use Caution and Follow Traffic Signage on Philmont Avenue Bridge Project in Lower Moreland Township
As construction continues on the replacement of the bridge carrying Philmont Avenue (Route 2013) over Huntingdon Valley Creek in Lower Moreland Township, Montgomery County, PennDOT and local police remind drivers that the bridge is currently open only to eastbound traffic in one direction through the work zone. Westbound Philmont Avenue traffic is being detoured around the bridge along Byberry Road (Route 2009) and Route 232 (Huntingdon Pike). Eastbound traffic is being directed to proceed one-way through the work zone.
PennDOT, Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP) and local police urge motorists driving westbound on Philmont to follow the posted detour, unless visiting local businesses. For the safety of the construction workers and traveling public, additional traffic measures have been added to the project area – including road traffic signage, electronic message boards and flaggers – to prevent motorists from traveling westbound over the bridge. PennDOT and PWKP are working with local law enforcement officials to determine if additional traffic safety measures need to be implemented to further safeguard the traveling public and construction workers in the project area.
Additionally, PennDOT reminds all motorists that they are required to travel with their headlights on in all posted work zones, and failure to obey official traffic control devices could result in fines in the amount of $150. Additional information on work zone safety is available on PennDOT’s website at http://www.penndot.gov/TravelInPA/Safety/TrafficSafetyAndDriverTopics/WorkZone/Pages/default.aspx.
Built in 1929, the existing two-span concrete, slab bridge will be replaced with a single-span, integral abutment bridge. Replacement work is being performed by Allan Myers of Worcester, PA.
This bridge is one of 558 bridges being replaced under PennDOT’s Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. For more details about this bridge, please visit: http://www.parapidbridges.com/bridgesbycounty/montgomerycounty/bridge216.html
