Is Your Street on Abington's List to be Paved?

See which streets are on the preliminary proposal to be paved in Abington next year.

 

The Abington Public Works Department will be paving several roads as part of its proposed 2013 capital program. According to preliminary budget figures, the cost to pave these roads – about 3.6 miles – is a shade under $378,000.

Who determines which roads are de-potholed? 

Abington Public Works Director Ed Micciolo said during last night's budget workshop that every road in the township is assessed and evaluated each year by himself and his crew. The worst roads are narrowed down to what the budget allows; he added that his department tries to pave roads in clusters to get the best "bang for the buck."

Board of Commissioners President Carol DiJoseph said jokingly that the board could spend all night arguing which roads are in most need of paving.

Below is a table listing which roads are slated to get slating.

1/2 of our street is Upper Moreland (paved) the other 1/2 Abington (Huntungdon Valley) up to Edge Hill (lots of patches), Edge Hill is a mess including accumulation of leaves and water

when aqua replaced the water line in our street they did a better job of paving the area they dug up and repaired , when the township repaved our street a year later , they should have left our street alone ,it was in better condition before they did the repaving job. SUSQUEHANNA ROAD if iam not mistaken is a state road and why is it the township wont go after penn dot to make the necessary repairs?
