Main Street Construction Activities
Water & Sewer Authority Work: We understand that last summer's Water & Sewer Line replacement project was painfully slow and disruptive. The Authority will be working to finish the work that was left incomplete due to weather conditions by the end of May. The work is being completed by a different contractor and is much more limited in scope. However, the work zone is near and at the intersection of Gamefarm Road, E. Park Avenue and Main Street and will cause disruption of the Traffic Signal and traffic. Your patience is appreciated. Please call 610-287-772 with questions or concerns.

Borough Work: The 100 block of Main Street is also scheduled for sidewalk and curb replacement. This project may require lane reductions and restrictions at Maple Avenue where a new handicap ramp will be installed.

PennDot Work: Penndot has awarded a contract to Highway Materials, Inc. of Flourtown for the mill and overlay repair of Main Street from the Route 73 Bridge through the limits of the Borough and beyond. This work is not anticipated before September of this year and will be completed before the end of the year. We will need to tolerate the poor road conditions until then.
