PennDOT Announces Lane Closure on Street Road

Verizon Pennsylvania is planning weekday lane closures on Street Road between Bustleton Pike and Harding Avenue beginning Tuesday, May 19 through Friday, May 29.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because backups and delays will occur.  All scheduled activities are weather dependent.

Verizon Pennsylvania is completing this project under a PennDOT Highway Occupancy Permit.

New Primary Election Day is June 2, 2020

On March 27, 2020, Governor Wolf signed Senate Bill 422, which reschedules Pennsylvania Primary Election Day to Tuesday, June 2, 2020 due to the COVID-19 public emergency.  Voters have the option to vote by mail-in ballot rather than going to a polling place on Election Day.  Mail-in ballot applications will be accepted until May 26, 2020.

Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan Update – Neshaminy Interceptor

The proposed Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan Update is available for inspection by the public for 30 days beginning Wednesday, May 6, 2020 through Thursday, June 4, 2020.  This Plan Update provides the planning necessary for new sewage facilities to serve the portion of Lower Southampton Township in the Neshaminy Interceptor Service Area.  The alternative selected by the Plan Update is to continue with existing public sanitary system collection, conveyance and treatment for the areas requiring public sewers and to continue to implement the Township’s Infiltration and Inflow Abatement Program in the service area.  In addition, the Neshaminy Interceptor is to be upgraded to adequately address the future needs of Lower Southampton Township for a period of ten years.

Written comments on the proposed Act 537 Sewage Facilities Plan Update will be accepted by the Manager’s office at 1500 Desire Avenue, Feasterville, PA 19053 through June 4, 2020
