2018 ROAD PROGRAM
T. A. Robinson Asphalt Paving will be working in the borough on North, Orchard and upper Allegheny Avenues beginning the week of September 24. The 2018 Road Project includes removal of all bricks, setting the sub-base; base and then paving. Information will be distributed by the contractor to residents on these streets as the work progresses. Emsworth Council appreciates your patience as we move forward to update these streets under the 2018 road program.
West View Authority is scheduled to complete their transfers by October 8. T.A. Robinson will then begin their part of the project. No parking on North and Orchard Avenues during this phase will begin shortly to install catch basins, curbing, the sub-base, base and final paving. Emsworth Council appreciates the patience of residents who must traverse these roads daily as well as finding alternate parking as this project moves forward.
The Center Avenue decorative street lights were removed Oct. 8. The lamp posts will be painted and refurbished and then new decorative LED lights will be installed. Please note this process may take at least two weeks and it will be dark on Center Avenue during this process. Thank you for your patience.
