Middletown Township's Road Improvement Program is a fourteen-year plan to repave more than 100 miles of Township-owned roads in the community. Damaged and worn roads can cause safety hazards and additional risk to vehicle maintenance. It is important to keep road repaving on schedule because delays cause additional wear to roads, making them more expensive to fix and maintain over longer periods of time.
The tenth year of the Road Improvement Program was recently authorized by the Middletown Township Board of Supervisors. Road paving is focused on the Idlewood neighborhood, as well as select other Township-owned roads in the Township. A full list is available below. Repaving is expected to occur between July and September.
The bid is being prepared to complete the base bid and alternates most effectively within the established budget ($1M) under the Township’s 2023 Capital Improvement Projects. The Township solicits bids for repaving several miles of Township roads each year. Soliciting bids from contractors allows the Township to find a competitive rate from various businesses, while avoiding overhead costs such as equipment and seasonal personnel.
The full list of roads (all or in part) to be paved include:
- S. Flowers Mill Road (from E. Maple Ave to Lincoln Highway), including drainage improvements near culvert
- Frosty Hollow Road (from Upper Orchard Drive to Bristol Oxford Valley Road) Pennhill Drive (cul-de-sac and length of roadway to Neshaminy Street)
- Rising Sun Avenue (L-shape roadway off W. Lincoln Highway)
Included as Alternates:
- North Fire Station Parking Lot
- Frosty Hollow Road Walking Path (from Juniper Drive to Bristol Oxford Valley Road)
In addition to these roads, PennDOT is busy throughout the area repaving state-owned roads.
Construction is expected to be completed by the fall. Please follow posted signage as crews perform work.
