The Master Plan is intended to serve as a comprehensive approach to planning for sustainable transportation and land use conditions within the 25-mile-long corridor. Traditional transportation projects, community and land use planning practices, intermodal facilities/park-and-ride lots, and land preservation activities comprise the strategic improvement program.

Leo Bagley's plan to toll 422 and run a train up to Reading is nothing more than a ploy to suck Berks County into SEPTA's funding pool. No one is going to ride a train from Reading to Philadephia 5 days a week.

Give me a break! And no tolls on 422!

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
