06/26/2014 -- DRIVERS NEEDED FOR NORTH PENN VOLUNTEER PROGRAM BEGINNING IN JULY!

In July, the Access Committee of the Greater North Penn Collaborative for Health and Human Services announces the formation of a Volunteer Driver Program.  The program, designed by The Partnership TMA, will service residents who live in the North Penn, Souderton and Wissahickon school districts.  

If you or someone you know has a few hours a month to donate, please consider signing up as a volunteer driver to help seniors and others without any form of transportation access shopping, medical and social activities.  

For more information, please contact The Partnership TMA at 1-866-507-4857 or info@ptma-mc.org.  

06/11/2014 --TRAFFIC ALERT: FRANCONIA TWP INTERSECTION TO CLOSE JUNE 16

Beginning June 16, the intersection of Godshall Rd, Cowpath Rd and West Broad St in Franconia Twp will be CLOSED & DETOURED for five months as its realignment project continues.

Improvements include relocating and widening Godshall Road, West Broad Street and Cowpath Road to provide two 11-foot travel lanes and four-foot shoulders on each roadway. Turn lanes are being added and a five-foot-wide sidewalk is being built to extend the current sidewalk on West Broad Street through the intersection and down Godshall Road. This new sidewalk will provide a safe walkway for pedestrians and link to an adjacent walking trail.

The following detours will be posted:

  •  Cowpath Road will be closed and detoured between Beck Road and Route 113 (Harleysville Pike). Through traffic will be detoured over Beck Road/Elroy Road, Allentown Road and Route 113 (Harleysville Pike);

02/20/2014 -- SAY 'I LOVE YOU' WITH A BIKE HELMET!

That's right!  During our "I Love You & Your Brain, Too!" bicycle safety awareness promotion, you can purchase a sturdy child-or-adult sized helmet in an array of eye-catching colors for only $13.  Or, select your helmet and we will wrap it in a festive bag and hand deliver it all for only $18.   

Studies show that using a bike helmet increases one's chances dramatically of surviving potentially fatal head injuries.  In fact, they are required for children ages 12 and under in Pennsylvania. 

Proceeds from "I Love You & Your Brain, Too" benefit the TMA's free bike share programs in the Upper Perk Valley, Hatfield Borough and a new location in Ambler in Spring 2014.  To select your loved one's new helmet, please contact The Partnership TMA at 215-699-2733 or info@ptma-mc.org
