 Traffic Control will be in place on Sawyers Way

The ongoing work at Well 26 will require traffic control tomorrow Wednesday February 9, 2022.  Traffic flow will be maintained via flagging a single lane in Sawyer’s Way with alternating passage from each direction, however there will be delays.  Although every effort will be made to avoid diverting traffic through Greenwoods Drive and Forester Road, it is possible that some traffic will use these roads as a route to bypass the work area, particularly if traffic backs up to Norristown Road.  We appreciate your continued patience as we do our best to minimize disruption within your neighborhood.

Starting on Monday, January 24, 2022 roadwork within Sawyer’s Way that is necessary to accommodate the installation of the new driveway to the Authority’s well site in your neighborhood will begin.  Work will be occurring between Greenwoods Drive and Forester Road.  Traffic flow will be maintained via flagging a single lane in Sawyer’s Way with alternating passage from each direction, however there will be delays.

Although every effort will be made to avoid diverting traffic through Greenwoods Drive and Forester Road, it is possible that some traffic will use these roads as a route to bypass the work area, particularly if traffic backs up to Norristown Road.

It is anticipated that this first phase of work within the roadway will take approximately one week.  We appreciate your continued patience as we do our best to minimize disruption within your neighborhood.

Project Overview:    The Authority has awarded a contract to Doli Construction Co., to install alternate driveway access to our well located in the area of Greenwoods Drive and Beaver Hill Road.  Upon completion of the project, the Authority will no longer need to require parking restrictions for carbon change-outs on Green Woods Drive and Beaver Hill Road.  A construction schedule for the work has not yet been established due to ongoing supply chain issues associated with COVID.  In the meantime, and prior to the start of construction contractors may be noticed performing preconstruction video-taping.  This is a requirement of the project contract in order to document existing conditions throughout the work area and ultimately ensure that the area is properly restored.  Email updates on this project are available by signing up on our website, completing the appropriate form and selecting “Well 26 Access Driveway”.
