The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently alerted State College pedestrians they will not be allowed to cross at a heavily trafficked intersection. 

Through the month of September, pedestrians are prohibited from crossing the intersection at Park Avenue and North Atherton Street.

Marc Maney, PennDOT’s Transportation Construction Inspector Supervisor, said their main priority is the safety of pedestrians.

Bellefonte Area School District is searching for alternate venues for its football team to play as it becomes clearer their home field won't be available for most of this fall's football season. 

In a July 17 meeting broadcast on C-NET, the school board learned that an issue ordering the bleachers for the new stadium would hold up its completion from the previous target date in September to about October 12.

This will likely prevent the Bellefonte Red Raiders from playing any home football games until at least their October 26 matchup with Bald Eagle Area High School.
