Road Reconstruction Comes in Under Budget
The Falls Township Supervisors have set the wheels in motion for the full depth reconstruction of several roadways for less than the amount earmarked in the 2018 budget.
The Supervisors unanimously voted to award the 2018 road program to General Asphalt Paving Co., Inc. in the amount of $2,207,644.40 – which amounts to $300,000 under budget.
The governing body had reserved $2.5 million for the full depth road reconstruction of Share Drive, the remaining portion of Walton Drive and a section of Lions Drive between Share Drive and Walton Drive.
Work is expected to begin toward the end of August and continue through year’s end, according to Township Engineer Jim Sullivan.
The Supervisors remain committed to maintaining safe roadways through annual road improvement projects. Each year Falls officials designate specific roads for upgrades.
