TOLL BROTHERS TO RESTRICT ROUTE 162

Toll Brothers is planning a lane closure on Route 162 (Strasburg Road) between Bradford Avenue and Bradford Terrace in East Bradford Township, Chester County, beginning Wednesday June 2, for utility construction, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced. The lane closure will be in place Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM through Wednesday, June 23.  Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.  Toll Brothers will complete this project under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.

 

COPELAND SCHOOL ROAD CLOSURE

PECO will be starting a gas project on Copeland School Road on Monday June 21st. The segment of Copeland School Road to between Frank Road and Kenmara Drive (at the bridge near the sharp turn) will be completely closed (24/7) for about 4 weeks.

 

OPEN BURNING PROHIBITED

On April 13, the Board of Supervisors acted to defer the issuance of burning permits until the Township has the opportunity to review and update its burning ordinance, which is out of line with Federal, State, and County standards. Several burning activities are permitted (silviculture, recreational, and ceremonial) with the express permission of the Fire Marshal. If you have questions, please contact Fire Marshal Rich Hicks at rhicks@eastbradford.org or (610) 436-5108 x104.
