Update: June 2023
At the public meeting held on June 13, 2023, the Board of Supervisors awarded the contract for the reconstruction of the Rydal Lane culvert to D.J. Pinciotti Construction Co. Inc. The proposed pre-cast concrete culvert and wing walls were designed to conform to the Department of Environmental Protection and PennDOT standards and regulations. The current lead time from the supplier for the pre-cast culvert is approximately 3-months. Even with this delay, Upper Southampton Township staff and contractors will continue to work towards the common goal of completing the project by winter.
Thank you for your continued patience.
