From the Public Works Director – 03/29/17

Spring Paving

The Warminster Township Public Works Department will be performing 3 small paving projects in April to warm up for the 2017 Road Paving Program. The projects include the completion of the main parking lot asphalt overlay at Warminster Township’s 5 Ponds Golf Course, the overlay of asphalt sidewalks at the Warminster Township Public Library, and the overlay of asphalt walking trails at Warminster Township’s Crooked Billet Green park in Warminster Heights. The projects should be completed in one week in April 2017 as weather conditions start to improve. These projects will also serve as a good preparation of equipment and manpower in anticipation of the 2017 Road Paving Program which includes the milling and paving of more than 5 miles of Township roads in May and June of this year. Copies of the 5 year Road Improvement Plan and a list of roads to be paved this year are also available to the public upon request from Warminster Township Administration office at 215-443-5414.

Valley Road Closure

In Spring and Summer of 2017, Warrington Township, in partnership with Warminster Township, will be constructing a new storm water box culvert on Valley Road at Kingsley Drive. The intent of the project is to alleviate flooding on Valley Road in this area during and after heavy rain events. The existing system is outdated and does not meet the capacity standards for water flow during storm events.

Warminster Township will announce the schedule for the closure of Valley Road to Township residents as Warrington releases the schedule of construction. Valley Road will be closed at Street Road and also at County Line Road. Local traffic will be allowed on Valley Road in the closure area to allow residents to get to their homes. Detour routes and duration of the project will be available in the coming weeks as more information becomes available from Warrington Township.
