The West Goshen Township Public Works Department is undertaking a major storm sewer repair on Locksley Road due to a sinkhole that developed. Upon investigation by the Streets Department, it was determined that the piping was failing and needed to be replaced. At their meeting on April 5, 2022, the Board of Supervisors discussed this project and approved emergency repair work for the roadway. This project will involve the replacement of 160 ft. of corrugated metal pipe and 160 ft. of curbing. Work began on April 20, 2022 and will take three (3) to four (4) weeks to complete. Please be advised that the road will be closed during work hours.
Construction on the Pine Valley Circle stormwater project is underway. The replacement pipe has been installed and the lining has been completely installed and grouted. Basin work will be completed during the spring, along with the final paving and lawn restorations. The contractor will also complete the basin improvements on Pine Valley Circle at the cul-de-sac at this time. We will then begin working on punch list items for the project.
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding as we have worked to complete these projects.
In addition to these projects, engineering work is continuing on the other stormwater projects in the Township. This includes the pipe culvert replacement on Bolmar Street, the pipe culvert lining on Legion Drive, and the Sylvan Road pipe replacement project. These projects are slated for 2022 and are being funded through the funds received through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
