Police, residents discuss traffic, Race Street bridge work
On March 28, Pie’s On Pizzeria, 102 Pine St., opened its doors to a monthly community meeting with the police. Catasauqua Borough, along with Holy Trinity Memorial Lutheran Church, sponsors the events, each with its own clever name, at various locales. The latest meeting was titled Pizza with Police. This is the second time that Pie’s On Pizzeria hosted the event.
“We enjoy being able to meet with local residents and get an idea of their concerns,” said Police Chief Douglas Kish.
This month’s topic was traffic and the effect closing the Race Street bridge was having on local residents. Kish explained the logic of closing Pineapple Street is to keep heavy trucks from using the narrow street. He noted some drivers were waiting in DnD Market’s parking lot until traffic cleared on Race Street and then darting across to catch the eastbound lane.
