PECO TO RESTRICT STRASBURG ROAD (STATE RTE 162)
FOR UTILITY IMPROVEMENT
Beginning Friday, July 26 through late September, PECO Energy is planning a lane closure with flagging on Route 162 (Strasburg Road) between Telegraph Road (E. Bradford) and Jolene Drive (W. Bradford) for utility construction. Weather permitting, the lane closure will be in place Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Motorists should allow extra time when traveling through the work area because backups and delays will occur.
LENAPE ROAD BRIDGE CLOSURE FOR REPAIRS
The Wolf Administration announced today that the Route 52 (Lenape Road) bridge over the Brandywine Creek in Birmingham Township is scheduled to close for rehabilitation on Monday, August 19, through May 2020. PennDOT will repair, strengthen and restore the deteriorating seven-span, stone masonry arch and also rebuild the stone walls at the Route 52 (Lenape Road) and Creek Road intersection to provide additional room for vehicular turning moves. During the closure, Lenape Road motorists will be detoured over Pocopson Road, Route 926 (Street Road) and Birmingham Road. Before the closure and detour is implemented, traffic signal work, including timing modifications, will take place.
PECO TREE MAINTENANCE IN AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER
In the southern portion of the Township PECO lines will be inspected and trimmed of vegetation by Asplundh as part of routine maintenance during August and September. Affected residents will receive a notification letter in the mail in advance of the tree work.
2020 Budget preparation is underway. But, as reported during the 2019 Budget public approvals this past fall, the Township faces fiscal challenges to balance the budget. The Township has prepared a Budget 2020 FAQ to provide detailed information about the 2020 Budget. If you have budget-related questions that are not answered here, please contact Director of Finance Michael Lynch at email@example.com or (610) 436-5108 x101.
