This year Worcester Township will continue implementation of its annual road improvement program. This program is designed to maximize the useful life of infrastructure through an aggressive maintenance plan and appropriately-scheduled capital improvements. The program allows the Township to maintain more than 55 miles of roads in good condition.
The maintenance plan includes pothole repair, street sweeping, roadside brush trimming, roadside swale maintenance and patch milling. The capital plan includes the replacement of culverts and storm water pipes and the resurfacing and reconstruction of roads. On average, the Township resurfaces and/or reconstructs between three and five miles of roadways each year.
In 2018 the following roads will be resurfaced:
- Bean Road, from Whitehall Road to North Wales Road;
- Fisher Road, from Valley Forge Road to Wentz Church Road;
- Hollow Road, from Mill Road to Water Street Road;
- Little Creek Lane;
- North Wales Road, at Cori Lane intersection;
- Oak Terrace;
- Shady Lane; and,
- Wentz Church Road, from Fisher Road to Morris Road.
The resurfacing work is now underway, and is expected to conclude by mid-August, weather depending.
Motorists using the above-noted roads may experience delays during construction. We thank folks for their understanding and patience as we work to improve our community’s roadways.
