After months of planning and a great deal of work, the Highland Avenue Storm Water Replacement & Restoration Project will soon move forward. It was first necessary to allow Aqua America PA to update the sewage line on Highland Avenue, prior to the renovation and repaving. Due to all of the planning, Emlenton Borough will be completing this project with minimal costs from our budget, and many thanks are owed to Aqua America PA who partnered with the Emlenton Borough to make this happen!
Earlier this year, Herbert, Rowland & Grubic (HRG) designed the storm water and paving improvement for Highland Avenue. Excavations should begin on August 15th or 16th. The duration of this can only be estimated at this point, but more information will be available at the meeting.
ALL HIGHLAND RESIDANTS SHOULD ATTEND THE MEETING on August 13th at 5:00pm. Eck’s Dirt Works, Wilson’s Contracting and representatives from the borough’s emergency services will be there to discuss the closure of Highland Avenue during the excavations and paving. After the excavations, storm drains installed and a rough grade put back in place, bidding for the paving will begin. Paving for Highland Avenue will be completed at the latest by September 21st.
Please spread the word to anyone that this project might affect. Highland Avenue residents will soon have the newest street in town!
