The Delaware County Board of Prison Inspectors has launched a national search for a project manager to oversee a planned $35 million renovation and expansion project at the prison. Also, County Executive Director Edwin B. Erickson said yesterday that the rush to start the prison project would be slowed so that officials could assemble a comprehensive financing package that would cover other projects and expenses. The prison board last week authorized Warden George W. Hill to place ads in local newspapers and in the Wall Street Journal, making the effort to find a project manager "more or less a national search," said board member Charles P. Sexton Jr. Prospective candidates must submit "proposals" five days before the board's meeting next month, said board member Ward T. Williams.

Groundbreaking on Chester County's long-awaited and long-debated justice center could happen by June if everything goes according to plan. The commissioners are expected to award bids today for what officials are saying is one of the largest and most expensive construction projects in county history. If that happens and all the paperwork is completed in a timely fashion, a June start date is within the realm of possibility, said Don Thompson, the county's project manager. But first, he said, the lot at 200 W. Market St., now a staging area for the garage being built across the street, has to be cleared.

The start of high school will not be delayed even though renovations at a number of buildings are behind schedule, the consultant overseeing the $20 million project told the school board Tuesday night. The report was greeted with a mix of elation and skepticism by the board, and several members questioned the report's accuracy. "It sounds too good," said board member A. Jean McDougall. "I want it blatantly up front - are we going to be dancing to the same tune in September as we are now?"

If the school board agrees with its facilities committee's recommendations, the district will have a new multimillion-dollar employee. The committee will recommend that the school board hire a construction management company as a temporary full-time employee, as opposed to asking companies to bid on its recently approved renovations project. "I still like it because now I have control. We have control," said facilities committee chairman Richard Giangiulio. If the district hired a management company as an outside contractor rather than an employee, it would have to advertise for bids and accept the lowest responsible bidder.

Over the last 20 years, floods have taken a lot from Deb McGlade: Several cars, a lawn mower, "all the mementos the kids made when they were little. I pretty much have no wedding pictures. " But it wasn't until 2011, when Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee smashed into the region, that she realized the rushing watery menace pervaded much of Cheltenham Township. "I had no idea that other neighborhoods were flooding as drastically as Brookdale," she said. "That was an eye-opener for me. " That horrific year persuaded McGlade and many others that the township needed to take a comprehensive look at its watershed and find places to ease the pressure.

Weeks after Pope Francis paraded past adoring throngs along Philadelphia's premier boulevard, a new frenzy has taken hold on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Towering cranes, traffic detours, and construction fences have created a Legoland out of Logan Square, whose Swann Memorial Fountain forms the heart of the majestic avenue connecting City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. All around the fountain, apartment towers rise, workers topple Vine Street Expressway bridges only to build them back up, and old buildings make way for new hotels.

Vice President Biden toured a dredging barge at Penn's Landing on Thursday to show support for the project to deepen the Delaware River shipping channel. Biden, the latest high-profile politician to visit the region in recent days, was flanked by a phalanx of Pennsylvania Democrats - U.S. Sen. Robert P. Casey Jr., and U.S. Reps. Robert A. Brady and Chaka Fattah. Before delivering remarks on the ongoing deepening of the Delaware, Biden and the delegation were taken on a tour of the large barge by Brian Puckett, project manager for Great Lakes Dredging & Dock Co. The vessel's main feature, a dredging bucket that can haul as much as two dump trucks, immediately caught Biden's eye. "That's a hell of a bucket," the vice president said after walking a gangplank onto the ship.
