Please don't forget New Street between Oak and New St. It is easily the worst street in Butler. My car is getting beat up everytime I have to use my driveway!

First, the paving of the Bartholdi area is now underway, 8/23 at noon. Second, Bobby L, that is not New Street but Whiting Boulevard believe it or not. I can say that from years of looking at the official Borough of Butler maps while at the police station and light plant. Checking Mapquest I found no street connecting New & Oak while Googlemaps has it as a section of New. Interestingly, about a year ago I was informed that what had been marked as Whiting Blvd for decades was only a paper street with the property not being public.
