North Wales, Pa. − February 25, 2019 — Senator Maria Collett (D-12) announced today that the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has awarded a $1,378,718 contract to Road-Con, Inc. for the restoration of 11 stormwater management sites and 5 wetland mitigation and planting sites in Bucks, Montgomery, and Chester Counties.
The funds will be used to repair and maintain stormwater and wetland sites that were constructed as part of previous roadway projects. The goal of the project is to help reduce future flooding and safeguard compliance with existing environmental permits.
“Investing in our infrastructure is critical to ensuring that our communities continue to be wonderful, vibrant places to live, work, and play for years to come,” said Senator Collett. “Time and again, I’ve heard from our municipal partners about the massive needs in these areas, and I am pleased to see PennDOT taking a proactive approach.”
The restorative work in the 12th District will take place at these stormwater, wetland, and planting locations:
- Stormwater site at U.S. 202 Parkway in Warrington Township, just north of Route 152 (Limekiln Pike).
- Stormwater site at the intersection of U.S. 202 Parkway and Costco Drive in Montgomery Township;
- Stormwater site on southbound Route 309 just north of Norristown Road in Lower Gwynedd Township;
- Stormwater site located just west of the intersection of Godshall Road and Cowpath Road in Franconia Township;
- Wetland mitigation site north of the intersection of Allentown Road and Wambold Road in Franconia and Hatfield townships; and
- Roadside planting site on northbound Route 309 adjacent to Peterman Lane in Lower Gwynedd Township.
This project is expected to begin this spring and finish in the spring of 2021. The project is 100 percent state-funded.
