Posted 8/25: The closed street is Quarry Road, Between PA Route 100 and E. Penn Avenue. The date of the closure is September 7th through December 15th, 2021. Click here to view map details.
Posted 9/16: Line painting has not been completed due to weather. As of right now, it is projected to continue until Monday or Tuesday 9-20 and 9-21, all contingent upon weather. We are line-striping all Township-owned roads. Do not drive over freshly painted lines. Please use caution when traveling on roadways with freshly painted lines.
Posted 8/2/21: SWERP, Inc. contractors for LMT, will be working on our main sewer lines starting Monday 8/2/21 in the following Communities. There will be no traffic delays.
Ancient Oaks (Catalpa & Woodbine only)
- Street sweeping starts in the month of April and continues through the summer (weather permitting). We cannot post an exact schedule because it could change on a moments notice due to weather, equipment malfunctions or other road issues which could expend our manpower. Moving parked vehicles while sweeping is in progress, is advised.
Street-side tree trimming is ongoing by the Public Works Department or our contractors. For more information check website for tree trimming.
Types of Road Resurfacing Materials
Ralumac (Trade Name) aka Microsurfacing– a process of cold-applied asphaltic material designed for ultimate effectiveness as an overlay carpet. It is applied through a specially designed continuous flow machine. It allows for minimal shut down of traffic, minimizes the amount of loose stone, extends the life of the existing pavement for 7 to 10 years on low volume roads by sealing the road surface and does not significantly raise the current profile of the road.
This surface always appears to have a rough, uneven texture after application. Small stones will develop. The texture will smooth out over time as it cures and as more and more vehicles drive over it. The discoloration will eventually fade. The stones will be swept as needed at a later date; after a thorough curing process.
This surface is an approved PennDOT method and it is the most economical and the most prudent use of tax payer’s dollars. We have used this process for many years within the interior Developments.
Nova Chip (Trade Name) aka UltraThin Wearing Course – The Nova Chip paving process places an ultrathin, coarse aggregate over a special asphalt membrane. This process is quickly completed in one pass, only minimally adds to the height of the existing surface, increases the life span by 7 to 10 years, provides better traction, less water absorption and allows for a quieter road surface.
High Performance Chip Seal/ Fog Seal - An oil and aggregate mixture applied in two passes. An asphalt emulsion is applied to the road followed immediately by a chip spreader application covering all of the sprayed surfaces. It is then compacted with a rubber tire roller that kneads and sets the aggregate into the sprayed emulsion. During this operation, traffic is minimally delayed and vehicles can be allowed at a reduced speed upon compaction. This process extends the road life by 5 to 10 years; seals minor cracks, provides added traction and minimizes water absorption.
The FOG SEAL is then applied and is an application of asphalt emulsion sprayed onto the pavement surface. The emulsion is diluted to the proper consistency to obtain complete coverage of the roadway. Because fog seal works better on a coarse aggregate surface where asphalt emulsion has room to pond between aggregate particles, fog sealing is a highly satisfactory complement to a chip seal surface.
Fog seals are used to delay weathering of pavement, to waterproof pavement surface, to improve the pavement/s ability to keep water from penetrating the base course or subgrade and to reduce raveling.
