Spad’s Scoops is a Cone in Progress



The question among locals was “when is the ice cream shop on Mill Street going to open?”

Lower Bucks Source went into fact finding gear, seeking answers from Mindy Spadaccino owner of Spad’s Scoops recently.

Spadaccino, one half of the Spad’s Scoops ownership team said there is still work to be done to get the shop prepared.

There’s still some work to do in the shop, we hope to be opening as soon as we can. We’re waiting on approvals from Bristol to start the last of the work that needs to be done in order to open, she said, but we don’t wan to rush it, Spadaccino said.

The couple, who have full time careers (he in engineering, she in the pharmaceutical industry) have been working hard to get the shop ready for its anticipated opening and want everything to be perfect for the first servings from the shop.

Bristol has been very welcoming, she said, adding we have received plenty of support from officials in preparation for our launch.

“The entire family is thrilled about Spad’s Scoops and will be involved one way or another Spadaccino said of her three children, Karsyn, Steven, and Darcy. ‘

Karsyn, will be there from opening day to help out, she said. .

I don’t want to say or project on when we’ll open, since there is a lot of work to be done yet, but like I said, we’re working on it and you can follow along on our social media pages for updates, she said.

Plus, she said, “everyday is a great day for ice cream!”

You never know, you just might see something there about adult ice cream’s, Spadaccino said with a laugh.

Turnpike Commission: Traffic Disruptions along the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-95 in Bristol Township




The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is warning motorists of expected traffic disruptions along the Pennsylvania Turnpike and I-95 in Bristol Township due to an ongoing bridge rehabilitation project.

Starting this week, drivers merging onto I-95 northbound from the Delaware Valley Interchange acceleration ramp will encounter a temporary stop sign. The stop sign is in place through August 11 and is being placed to facilitate safe merging near the Levittown/Bristol Interchange (Exit 42). Additionally, on Friday, July 19, from midnight to 5 a.m. traffic pacing operations will slow vehicles to 20 to 25 mph. The intermittent 15-minute slowdowns at milepost 42.35 are planned for the safety of motorists and construction crews working on the bridge over the East Penn Railroad.

Motorists traveling eastbound and westbound on the Turnpike and northbound and southbound on I-95 in Bucks County are advised to adjust their travel plans accordingly. Pennsylvania State Police and Turnpike personnel will be on-site to guide drivers through the work zones. Travelers can also expect updates from changeable message signs along the routes, according to officials. Officials noted that the work schedule may change depending on weather conditions.
