RICHLAND TWP., Pa. -

In Bucks County, construction of a new assisted-care home is getting underway.

Officials broke ground on the new Phoebe Richland building in Richland Township Thursday afternoon.

In addition to providing a home for more than 70 residents, officials say the new center will also bring about 40 jobs to the area.

It's expected to be up-and-running by spring of next year.
