Road Shoulders on Recently Paved Roads
We will be installing shoulders on the recently paved roadways within the township. This will eliminate the sharp drop at the edge of pave. We expect the road shoulders phase of the project to be completed within 10-14 days.
Thank you for your patience.
Line Painting on Township roads is expected to begin on the last week in July and be completed in early August.
