Falls Sets Wheels in Motion for Annual Road Program
With an eye on motorists’ safety while traveling on Falls Township roadways, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to contract with Jones Engineering Associates to undertake various duties related to the township’s annual road program.
For 2019, Falls plans to carry out full depth reconstruction of five township roads in the Hedgerow Woods section of Falls, including Fletcher Drive, Rice Drive, Lions Drive, Simons Drive and Gilbert Drive. In addition, a portion of Elbow Lane between Stony Hill Road and the Falls Township boundary has been designated for mill and overlay improvements.
Road work is typically undertaken sometime in the spring or summer months once weather is consistently above freezing.
As part of the company’s proposal, the engineering firm would prepare design, bid and construction documents for the road program improvement project and would also prepare the project specification, bid schedules, advertisements and attend pre-bid meetings. Jones Engineering Associates would also obtain professional surveying and base mapping services and perform a PA One-Call for all available information related to the various underground utilities that could be present in the work zone. Cost of the company’s services related to this project is $294,500.
