Cecil Township Board of Supervisors this week voted to proceed with the bidding process for its $1 million road program.
Township Manager Don Gennuso said the board hopes to send bid packages out this month and be in a position to open the bids and award the contract next month.
"The board hopes to start the project as soon as possible in the spring," Gennuso said.
The project is being paid for through the township's allotment of liquid fuel money, which amounts to about $700,000. Another $250,000 of the cost will be covered by local impact fee money related to Marcellus Shale drilling, and the remaining $135,000 will be paid with the township's local share of casino revenue.
The following roads are included in the project.
- Commerce Boulevard from Mayview Road to the terminus
- Stretches of Freedom Drive
- Gladden Road from state Route 980 to the township line
- Second Stree in Lawrence from School Street to Lawrence Street
- School Hill Road from Morganza to Morganza
- Burnside Road from Muse-Bishop Road to Papp Road
- Ridgeway Street from Muse-Bishop to its terminus
- Bonaire Drive from Ridgewood to its terminus
- McConnell Road from Muse-Bishop to Stonecrest
- Grange Road from Millers Run to Coleman Road
Genusso said the township's public works crew would also be making road improvements to other streets.
What do you think of the list? What other streets would you like to see upgraded?
