With winter weather knocking at our door, it is a good time to share with our community some information from the Public Works Department regarding snow and ice removal from our roadways.
Newtown Township’s Public Works Department treats and clears approximately 60 miles of roadway during snow and ice events. Our staff and vehicles are dispatched as soon as is possible during a storm, and work to make our streets as safe as possible for travel. We stay on the job until everything that can be done has been done.
The "Public Works - Roads and Road Issues" page of the website has good information about this topic. In particular, we have a pdf specific to winter weather information - a link to which is shared here:
Newtown Township Public Works - Information Regarding Snow and Ice Removal
Also, on the Township's "Stormwater Page" is information from Chester Ridley Crum Watersheds Association regarding Alternatives to Salt for Treating Icy Sidewalks and Driveways. We encourage you to take a look at this flyer.
We hope that the information on these two pages is helpful as we prepare to address winter weather.
