2012 Scheduled Road & Sidewalk Projects
Springfield Township was successful in obtaining State Capital Improvement Project (SCIP) grants for the following projects in 2012:
Kempermill Village Subdivision:
Complete resurfacing to include new concrete curb and gutter and full and partial depth repairs to pavement base, repair of catch basins and manholes, repavement
Estimated time: Late July, early August.
$85,000 State Capital Improvement Grant funds
$85,000 Approximate local match
Brentwood Village East Project:
Complete resurfacing to include new concrete curb and gutter and new asphalt surface
$275,000 State Capital Improvement Project Grant funds
$275,000 Approximate local match
Estimated time: Project will bid in late in 2012 and construction will begin in the spring of 2013.
These grant dollars are vital to the continued success of our road improvement programs. We could not afford to perform these projects with the funds generated by our existing road levy.
Each year the Township Board of Trustees budgets for repair and replacement of failed sidewalk blocks. These are sidewalk blocks where the height differential between two adjacent blocks exceeds 2” or where more than 25% of the block is comprised of loose or missing pieces. These blocks are being replaced at no additional cost to the resident.
This year we will be replacing almost 13,000 square feet (approx. 650 blocks) of failed sidewalk blocks in:
District 1 (Pleasant Run Farms)-by contract
District 5 (Lexington Hgts, Wellspring and Glencoe)-by contract
District 8 (WCH, Golfway)-by Township forces
District 10 (Valley and Edgemont)-by Township forces
Also on Daly, Winton, Section, Summit, Edgemont, Meredith, Fleming, and Ridgeway.
