Post Date:07/10/2017 12:33 PM

Paving the way to newer and better roads throughout the Township will create bumps along the way for affected residents and motorists. West Chester works diligently with contractors to minimize the impacts of road projects when possible and seeks patience throughout the process.

This financial commitment reflects West Chester’s commitment to ensure the Township’s more than 220 miles of road meet the high standards of the community while remaining fiscally responsible to the taxpayers.

West Chester will utilize several methods for communicating when and where road work is taking place this summer.

  • Residents directly impacted by the work will receive notification of steps to take when work is scheduled.
  • Streets impacted by work and schedules, when available, are available at from a homepage link.
  • Contractors will post “no parking” signs on streets and post “door hanger” signs the day before work is scheduled on a particular street.
  • will be used to notify affected neighborhoods of work schedules.

Work on the roads can be delayed due to weather or equipment failure beyond the control of West Chester Township or the contractor. Every effort will be made update the resources offered above when schedules change.
