GLENSIDE, Aug. 17 – State Rep. Steve McCarter, D-Montgomery, announced today that he will be joined by multiple local, state and federal officials at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31 at the Jenkintown-Wyncote Train Station to dedicate the Greenwood Avenue Bridge, which connects Cheltenham and Jenkintown, as the Honorable Lawrence H.

- PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards;
- U.S. Rep. Brendan Boyle;
- State Sen. Art Haywood;
- Montgomery County Commissioners’ Vice Chair Dr. Valerie Arkoosh;
- Cheltenham Township Board of Commissioners President Morton (Mickey) J. Simon Jr.;
- Jenkintown Borough Council President Deborra Sines Pancoe;
- Jenkintown Mayor Ed Foley; and
