York Road Paving Information

 

Important York Road Paving Information

On Monday, July 9, 2018 Borough Council approved a waiver from the Borough's noise ordinance to allow PennDOT to mill and pave York Road during the overnight hours. Working overnight will allow PennDOT to complete the paving project quicker and pose less of an inconvenience to residents and motorists during the project duration.

PennDOT will begin the York Road Milling and Paving Project at the end of August and are expected to work through early September. PennDOT will be beginning the project in the South end of town (Newington Drive) and  proceed north toward County Line Road. We do not currently have a specific start date, but will continue to update residents as the project approaches.

PennDOT has assured the Borough that any jackhammering and/or extremely loud work will be performed during the daytime hours to avoid disturbing residents. During the overnight hours, there will be noise caused by the vibration of the milling and paving machines; however, this noise is not expected to be much of a disturbance to residents.

Please stay tuned for more information as the project nears. Should you have any questions, please contact Borough Hall at 215-443-9100.
