Construction Postponed on Grosstown Road (Route 4042) Bridge Project in West Pottsgrove Township

Montgomery County Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership

King of Prussia, PA – Construction for the Grosstown Road (Route 4042) bridge, which spans Manatawny Creek in West Pottsgrove Township, Montgomery County has been postponed. It was previously scheduled to begin during the week of July 24.

Construction is now expected to begin during the week of August 7 and be complete in late November. During this time, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along West High Street (Route 4031) and Manatawny Street (Route 4037).

In the event of unfavorable weather or unforeseen activities, this schedule may still change.

This bridge is referred to as JV-219 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.

To see the bridges included in the statewide initiative and to learn more about the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project and P3 in Pennsylvania, visit www.p3forpa.pa.gov. Additional information on the project, the team and how to bid on the project can be found at www.parapidbridges.com.

Spring 2016 Newsletter

header

As many of you may have heard this will be my last newsletter as I will be retiring. I want to thank the Board of Commissioners that hired me for the position of Township Manager and gave me the outstanding opportunity to represent the Township. I watched with every passing election changes in the Board and noted that all Commission-ers are serving to make the community a better place to be.

2016 Recycling Information Now Available

We now have updated versions of Montgomery County recycling event flyers for household hazardous waste, paper shredding, and tires for 2016.

Due to forces beyond our control, Montgomery County will not be able to hold electronics collection events in 2016. Although state law requires electronics manufacturers to offer recycling opportunities for TVs and computers, those manufacturers are no longer sponsoring county recycling collections in the Southeastern PA region.

  • Best Buy will accept computers and TVs 32” and under for free recycling when dropped off at their store. They will also pick up TVs from homes for a fee. This option may be going away, but for now they are still accepting e-waste.
  • Salvation Army Thrift Store in Montgomeryville accepts working TVs of any size and shape as well as working computers and electronics. They are located at 671 Bethlehem Pike, Montgomeryville, PA 18936, phone number 215-631-1570.
  • Other than municipal drop offs and collections for residents only, there are no free disposal outlets for TVs over 32” that no longer work.

Happy New Year

West Pottsgrove Township would like to wish everyone a happy and safe 2016!
