Wheaton Library construction update (Photos)
Here's where construction stands on the new Wheaton Library and Recreation Center at Georgia and Arcola Avenues. The facility is expected to be completed next summer. Although that will be over a year after the original promised delivery date of summer 2018, the County should get credit for one thing - using American steel.
I was thrilled to see an "Amthor Steel Erie, PA" stencil on the side of the library's roof last month. If you know how hard Erie has been hit by factory closures, and jobs being shipped overseas, this is an optimistic sign. I've also heard of at least 3 blast furnaces reopening around the country, due to the recent tariffs on foreign steel. The jobs are coming back. Buy American!
