Projects and Construction

 Borough Street Improvements

Summer will be a busy time in the Borough as several projects have been scheduled. The following street projects are slated to be undertaken this summer:

  • The signal upgrade for the Main Street and Manor Street intersection has been approved. It will include all new traffic signal structures and hardware, traffic control software, lighting, sidewalk repair and accessible ramps. JVI Group has been contracted to perform this work which should begin shortly and be completed by the end of the year.  Most of the $473,779.00 expenditure has been offset by an ARLE (Automated Red Light Enforcement) grant from PennDOT.
  • Seal coating, at a cost of $103,592.00, will be completed by Martin’s Paving on Pennridge Avenue, Georgetown Court, Fairmount Terrace, Rockford Road, Rockford Square, Society Hill Circle and a portion of Spring Hill Lane. This process should extend the life of these streets for 10 years or more.
  • Toward the end of summer, milling and paving of portions of Huntington Drive, Spring Hill Lane and Providence Place in Summit Hills will be done by D. H. Funk. All of the $313,960.00 cost is being funded by the Local Statewide Share Grant, which was recently awarded to the Borough..
  • D.H. Funk has been contracted to do milling and paving of North Lemon Street from Hoover Street to the Borough Park during mid to late summer. Work will include resurfacing and a reverse crown on the roadway for proper stormwater run-off. A new dumpster pad and widening of the turn-a-round will also be completed. Funding of $71,207.00 project was made possible with monies received from the American Rescue Plan Act.

Fiber Optic Installation Project – Glofiber by Shentel

Construction is beginning throughout the Borough to place fiber optic lines within easements or right-of-ways on private properties. Flags and/or paint markings, which are required by law, indicating the proposed path of the new cable and the location of the existing utilities will be displayed on properties within work zones.  Work is scheduled to be done Monday through Saturday during the hours of 7:30 AM through 5:00 PM, throughout the next several months until the infrastructure is complete.

There will be five phases to the project with several phases requiring underground work.  Underground construction will begin with Park Avenue and Church Streets, moving to Carriage Drive and then the Summit Hills.
