The bursts of muffled sound that punctuated the neighborhood in the lower part of the borough early April 28 was welcomed by residents.

The noise was the sound of drills at the construction site where a new Coplay-Northampton Bridge will go up.

As this week closes, the heavy presence of law enforcement personnel at the borough hall returns to normal. Police, sheriff personnel and others in law enforcement underwent special prescribed training.

Westmoreland County, Carbon County and Lehigh County sheriff personnel took part in the training, indoors and outside.
