IMPORTANT ROAD WORK INFORMATION
Important Information Regarding the PennDOT Road Reconstruction Project on North Penn Street and Summit Avenue
On Monday, July 25, PennDOT began its complete road reconstruction project on the 300 block of North Penn Street (stretching from Summit to Meadowbrook) and Summit Avenue as a part of the Hometown Streets Project. During the length of this project, PennDOT will be installing curbs on North Penn Street as well as curbs and sidewalks on Summit Avenue.
Due to unforeseen circumstances during the early excavation process of the project, PennDOT has been forced to delay further excavation until PECO makes necessary readjustments to utility lines. As a result, North Penn Street and Summit Avenue were not closed beginning Monday, July 25 as previously planned and affected residents will continue to have access to driveways until further notice.
PennDOT will resume excavation as soon as PECO completes the necessary repairs and all affected residents will be notified of the new road closure dates as soon as they are available. The Borough of Hatboro continues to work closely with PennDOT and PECO in order to keep residents as well informed as possible and will continue to communicate with residents regarding any and all information regarding the reconstruction project as soon as it is available.
Please note that residents who do not live on the 300 block of North Penn Street or Summit Avenue will still have access to the street and their driveways during the entire length of the project; however, they can expect delays and increased on-street parking due to the work being performed elsewhere.
Should you have any questions, please contact Borough Hall at 215-443-9100.

Mulch from Recycled Yard Waste Now Available to Hatboro Residents
Have you ever wondered what happens to the leaf bags and sticks you place curbside for collection? After our Public Works employees pick them up, the bags are transported to Abington Township’s composting site where they are processed into mulch without added chemicals. In an attempt to bring your recycling efforts full circle, the Borough is making this mulch available to Hatboro residents free of charge. To make this mulch easily accessible to residents, the Public Works department has constructed a temporary bin at Memorial Park (located off of West Monument Avenue). Residents are welcome to stop by the bin at any time to take as much mulch as they need; however, residents are not permitted to load large trucks at this time. The Public Works Department will make every effort to keep an adequate supply on hand at all times. Mulch will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Borough Hall.
