Route 259 closure
Starting April 15th, Route 259 will be closed between Austraw Road and McCurdy Trail. PennDOT is repairing or replacing a culvert. The work was estimated to last a month, but delays have pushed the timeline back an additional two weeks. The new estimated completion date is approximately May 31st.

Township mowing and tree trimming
Residents, please be aware that our Public Works crew is out on the Township roads mowing and trimming trees and brush. Most Township roads have a right-of-way width of 33 feet. Any grass, flowers, trees, shrubs, or other growth within 16 feet of the center line of the roadway may be cut. The priority of our road crew is clearing sight lines for driving on our backroads, and while they do a good job, we are not professional landscapers. We recommend that if you are able you trim your front yards yourself you do so.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping keeping our roadways safe.
