Driving the parkway went smoothly on opening day, but it remains to be seen if the scenic road will be able to handle heavy traffic
It's like a suburban Skyline Drive. That's the impression I got as I drove the Route 202 Parkway just minutes after it opened to traffic late Monday afternoon. The real Skyline Drive is a 105-mile-long, two-lane road that runs the length of Shendandoah National Park in Virginia, featuring overlooks with sweeping vistas. The 35 mph road is free of commercial development, has overpasses and underpasses to avoid traffic lights, and is restricted to cars and passenger trucks. The new Route 202 Parkway would be a fantastic road if it were located in the Endless Mountains of Pennsylvania. It is protected from commercial development and private access, and is paralleled for its entire length by a paved 12-foot-wide bike-hike trail separated from …

After decades of discussion and years of planning and construction, the Route 202 Parkway will open in early December, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation said Thursday. The $200 million U.S. Route 202 Parkway will connect Doylestown and Montgomeryville. “We are eager to finish the remaining work along the nearly nine-mile-long Parkway so we can open the new roadway and its shared-use path to commuters, bicyclists and pedestrians,” PennDOT District Executive Lester C.

A 20-year-old Doylestown man has been arrested in northern Pennsylvania after stripping naked, jumping out a window and attacking a woman walking nearby.
Naked, screaming and bloody from jumping out a second-story window, a Doylestown man has been arrested in northern Pennsylvania after attacking a woman and “gnawing on her head,” according to state police there. Richard Cimino Jr., 20, of Doylestown is in custody and faces multiple charges in connection to the attack, which Pennsylvania State Police said occurred Friday.

The suspect, an off-duty New Jersey police officer, exchanged sporadic fire with responding officers as mid-afternoon standoff lasts until nearly midnight.
DOYLESTOWN (PA) - In the end, Richard Klementovich had nothing to say. The off-duty police officer from Clifton, NJ, was escorted from the back of a Doylestown Township squad car shortly after midnight Sunday after a 10-hour armed standoff that forced neighbors to evacuate their homes in this affluent suburb of Philadelphia. Klementovich remained silent as officers ushered him into the police department where he would be booked to face at least 13 charges of criminal attempted homicide and reckless endangerment. About a half hour earlier, Klementovich had surrendered without incident to officers on the front lawn of his estranged wife's home at 25 Bittersweet Drive in the Doylestown Lea neighborhood of Doylestown Township. As police began …
