I am very glad the road is open again, however it is very hard to see the painted lines when it rains at night. I almost had a car come over into my lane tonight because the driver thought the painted over lines were the ones currently being used - not the hard to see white ones that are the correct set.

Other than that, it's wonderful to drive through that area and not have to worry how long I'll be stuck in traffic.

I heard there is a shortage of the reflective glass beads added to the road paint. I wonder if they used enough?

I thought the project was completed in good time. The road is so much nicer now. I like the left hand turn onto East Station Ave, as that is where I turn to get to my salon/spa on Main St. Coopersburg. It is much more efficient now.

It does look really good. I'm just worried about the asphalt with all the truck traffic. I kind of wish the state would have forked out the dough to go with concrete. Regardless, it's a big improvement from before. New highway... updated Giant... wow, our little Coopersburg is becoming quite the hotspot.

Hot spot, don't fool yourself, It still a bunch of All day all this train does is cross the street back and forth like 10 times in a row honking that extremely loud horn.Why does the horn have to be so loud and done multiple times?
The cars cant see the arms down and the flashing red light that are already sitting there waiting for it to go by? Today this train crossed the track 6 times with a break of about 2 minutes in between slamming that horn! Is that even legal to disrupt the flow of 313s traffic all the time like that for just the locomotive to cross?
That rail crossing isn't even close to being in Coopersburg. It isn't even in the same county.
