Upper Dublin summer paving programs to begin on Monday

Upper Dublin Township recently announced that Mill & Overlay Resurfacing, Ralumac, and Nova Chip Programs will began roadwork on Monday, July 10 for the duration of the summer.

According to the Township, work will generally begin each day at 7:00am and be conducted by contractor James D. Morrissey, Inc. as well as the Township’s Public Works Department. 

From the announcement:

The contractor and Township will do everything they can to reduce the inconvenience to residents during these paving projects and ask for your patience and cooperation. These programs are put in place to provide residents safe and long lasting roads (up to 20-30 years) which will require minimal maintenance (every 7-10 years) to prevent road deterioration.

For more information on the Township’s 2023 Paving Programs, a list of affected streets with estimated work dates, and to see who will be conducting work on each street, please click the following links for each program:

Please keep in mind that schedules are dependent on weather and equipment breakdowns. Temporary “No Parking” signs (effective from Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 5:00pm) will be posted by the Township’s Highway Department at least one (1) day in advance of work being done in an area. It is strongly encouraged that vehicles are moved out of driveways and off the affected street before 7:00am the day work is to begin. 

While work is in progress directly in front of homes, there will be a varying wait time depending on the stage of each project before driveway access is available. The wait may be up to 30 minutes during milling, however, during paving, Nova Chip application, and Ralumac application the wait could take several hours as the blacktop goes through respective curing processes. If vehicles drive on blacktop before it is fully cured, damage may occur to the new street surface, vehicle finish, tires, and driveways. If there are unusual circumstances that warrant special consideration for road and driveway access, please contact the Upper Dublin Township Public Works Department as soon as possible at 215-643-1600 ext. 3810 to provide your contact information. 

These programs will require closure of at least one traffic lane at a time while work takes place, so through-traffic will be delayed or prohibited as needed. Local traffic and emergency vehicles will be accommodated where possible. Signage and traffic guides will be set in place and removed once work is finished. Township staff will be monitoring and coordinating work.

Road closure reminders will be continuously sent out via email (be sure to update your subscription to include the topic “Emergency Alerts”), FacebookInstagram, and ReadyMontco Alerts
