Recently, I took US 202 through Doylestown in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In 2017, you can continue driving on US 202 southbound along the US 202 Parkway. However, the first time I visited the area in October 2004, that was not the case. Someone choosing to continue south on US 202 would need to exit and drive on PA 611 briefly. There was a stub end at end of this interchange, as US 202 was planned to continue as an expressway beyond that point.
Great news for those that enjoy National Parks, West Virginia's New River Gorge Region, or West Virginia tourism. Included within the Fiscal Year 2021 Omnibus Appropriations Bill signed by President Trump last night (December 27th) is the New River Gorge Park and Preserve Designation Act. The act will designate the existing New River National River and over 72,000 acres of land within it as a National Park and Preserve. The New River Gorge Bridge will continue to be the centerpiece of the new New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. (Adam Prince, 2007) The river and surrounding land, which was added to the National Park System in 1978, will be our 63rd National Park. The designation preserves over 7,000 acres as a National Park. This area will not allow any hunting. The remaining 65,000 acres of the existing park will be designated as a preserve allowing hunting and fishing. The main attractions to the New River Gorge - whitewater rafting, camping, hiking, mountain bikin
