Orange Flags and Big White Trucks!?

I have received many phone calls in the past couple weeks asking about the orange/red marking on the side of the roadway…  You will start seeing cables being laid down on the side of the roadway and large white vehicles moving slowly along the roadway.  This is for seismic testing that is being preformed by Precision Geophysical for Penn Energy Resources as part of their Oil and Gas Operations in the Township.  We are not anticipating any roadway closures at this time.  There should not be any disturbance to the surface of your property either, all of the testing is temporary and should be done in the right-of-way of the road.  If you do have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at the Township and I will be happy to provide you with the right information to get you the answers you are looking for!

Construction Update

**the previous post was password protected.  That has been corrected and it is now available for public viewing!

 

The end of last week, Winfield Township completed an approximately $40,000 Dirt and Gravel Road project on East Cornplanter Road.  It consisted of adding about 18″ of shale to the roadway, widening the cart path and laying 6″ of 2A stone down for the driving surface.  This not only improved the condition of the roadway, it also kept the road eligible for more Dirt and Gravel Roads Grant money in the future!  Don’t think we could make that road better?  Here’s proof! East Cornplanter Road Video

If you think that looks nice, stay tuned for a Full Depth Reclamation project that is slated to take place on Cruikshank Road this Thursday!  We will keep you posted as we continue to re-invest your tax dollars into your infrastructure!

 

We are working hard for you!

Google lays out Township road program!

I am sure that many of you are just as happy as I am that Spring is here to stay!  Unfortunately, with the warm weather comes construction season…  The Township is using Google Maps to lay out our Road Maintenance Schedule.  This means that you are able to view our schedule for the next three years from your computer, see how many square yards your road may be (this is the number that is used by paving companies to determine how much material to put down), and even calculate what it will cost the Township to seal coat your roadway.  As a point of reference, we are currently seeing prices around $1.05 per square yard.

Check us out here: Road Maintenance Schedule

The Township also has used Google to identify the approximate locations of all the Zoning Districts and post most all of the regulations for those Districts.  Anyone looking to build or develop should still contact the Municipal Building to confirm their District and inquire about permits.

In addition, we will use it to catalog our assets like culverts, bridges, and signs to ensure our compliance with State and Federal Regulations!

So while you are enjoying the warm weather this year, we are planning out what we will be doing in warm weather 3-5 years from now to ensure that your roads, bridges, and infrastructure are safe for years to come!

Always remember to slow down in work zone areas, it is better to lose a couple seconds of your life than to lose your life (or someone else’s) in a couple of seconds.  GIVE OUR GUYS A BRAKE…

With warm weather becoming more frequent, we want to remind you that the Winfield Township Community Park, located at 194 Brose Road, Cabot, PA 16023 (behind the Municipal Building) is a great place to spend the afternoon and evening!  We have a pavilion with tables for a picnic as well as a jungle gym and swing set to keep any kid entertained for hours!

Are you looking to have an awesome Birthday party this year?!  We can help!  Reserve the Pavilion here: http://winfieldtownship.net/winfield-township-community-park/ for only $40.00!!

 

 

For those people who are looking to take a hike, we also have a 1.2 mile trail loop that goes around the outer perimeter of our Park as well!

 

If there is anything you would like to see in the park, let me know.  If you have any questions or comments, I would like to hear from you!  winfieldtwp@zoominternet.net
