Bucks Towns - Including Newtown - Prepare for Annual Road Work

Bucks Towns - Including Newtown - Prepare for Annual Road Work | Newtown News of Interest |

At least 10 Bucks County towns have awarded their 2019 road maintenance bid projects in recent months, with some expected to cost over $1 million.


Often referred to as “Road Programs,” these contracts are typically part of regular upkeep to municipal-owned roads that most towns in Bucks County do throughout the year.


Awarded contract amounts are subject to change and not all contract bids include an approximate cost estimate.


Projects in Middletown and Warrington, both large municipalities, are among the most costly road projects out of the towns that have posted bids in the last few months.


Middletown approved a $1.05 million contract with General Asphalt Paving Co., of Philadelphia, in April, while a recently awarded contract in Warrington was estimated to cost up to $1.1 million.


Middletown’s project includes work to Sunny Hill Road, a portion of Summit Trace Road off Doublewoods Drive and Wheeler Way.


Harris is also repairing up to 20 streets in Newtown Township this year for its $706,596 contract awarded in March (for details of the project, read “The 2019 Road Improvement Program”).
