DUE TO COVID-19, THE 2020 MILL AND OVERLAY PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
XXXXXXXXXXXX will be doing this work for the Township. Any schedule posted is dependent on weather and the lack of any equipment breakdowns. Temporary “No Parking” signs will be posted by our Highway Department at least one day in advance of the actual work being done. The No Parking signs are for Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Check back here often for updates. Dates for this work will be posted here when available. All dates are subject to the weather and equipment breakdowns.
Although work may not be done on your particular street until later in the day, the contractor usually begins work at 7:00 AM. You are strongly encouraged to make sure that your automobiles are moved out of your driveways and off your street before this time.
If you need to get into or out of your driveway during the time that the milling work is in progress, particularly when work is being done directly in front of your house, you may have to wait up to ½ hour. If there are unusual circumstances that warrant consideration, please contact the Upper Dublin Township Public Works Department as soon as possible to provide phone contact information.
During the milling process (whereby the existing blacktop is removed from the street), you will be able to get your cars into and out of your driveway with relatively short notice, except for when the milling equipment is working directly in front of your property. However, during the paving process, after an area is paved, adequate time (usually a few hours) must be allowed for the new blacktop to be properly compacted and cooled before traffic can drive on it. This will prevent damage to both the new street surface and to your car’s finish and tires. We also encourage you not to make sharp turns into and out of your driveway for a few days after paving to prevent the appearance of tire marks on your new roadway.
The contractor and the Township will do everything they can to reduce the inconvenience to our residents during this paving project and we ask for your patience and cooperation. This milling/paving process should not have to be repeated on your street for 20 to 30 years, although the road will be resurfaced every 7 to 10 years with a thin surface treatment in order to prevent road deterioration.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Andy Fowler (Township Inspector) at 215-643-1600 (x 3335).
