7/21/20 UPDATE - PECO and VERIZON to work on Boot Road this Summer

June 21, 2020 Update:

The VERIZON / PECO work previously reported on Boot Road and delayed by the June storm cleanups finally started last Friday, July 17th as PECO’s tree contractor (Asplundh) began the necessary tree work.  Residents should anticipate one-lane traffic along areas of Boot Road while this work takes place.

Residents, emergency services and mail / trash services should normally be able to get through the work area.  The road may be closed to cut-through traffic at times.  Please follow the directions of flaggers from Asplundh who will help you through the work area.  In instances where large equipment is utilized and temporary closures may be necessary due to removal of large tree limbs, etc., every effort will be made to provide advanced notice and access will be available from each side of the work area - however you may be unable to pass through for a short period of time. Again, advanced notifications will be made whenever possible.

Please see the previous post below for additional information.

Both PECO and VERIZON will be working on Boot Road this Summer to upgrade and install new equipment, which will include replacing poles and wires.  See the letter from PECO sent to residents in the area regarding the project by clicking HERE.

The project was identified at the same time as the Newtown Township 2020 Road Program was preparing to begin.  The road resurfacing of Boot Road and Philips Lane is being done first so as to ensure the resurfacing would not be delayed should the pole replacement project take longer than anticipated.

Please be aware of this work, and plan your travels in the area accordingly.  Always be safe while travelling through a work zone.
