PECO to Upgrade Equipment on Goshen Road and Earles Lane

PECO Symbol

Please see the attached LETTER FROM PECO regarding work to upgrade and install new equipment to enhance the local electric distribution system in the Goshen Road / Earles Lane area of Newtown Township.  

A rough map of the work area can be found HERE.  It is essentially taking place on Goshen Road between Earles Lane and Aronimink Drive, as well as the first areas on Earles Lane north of Goshen Road.  Other areas identified on the map have underground wiring, which is outside the scope of this project.  Additional vegetation, pole and wire work takes place in Radnor Township.

The vegetation-portion of the work will begin in February or March, followed by the pole and wire work.  The project is expected to be completed in 2022.  

The following information will be delivered to residents who live along this area of Earles Lane and Goshen Road:

Crews may need to temporarily interrupt service to safely complete some of this work. PECO will work with residents to ensure they are informed in advance of our activities and any planned interruptions, and with Newtown Township to minimize the impact on traffic and pedestrians whenever possible. Access for services such as trash and recycling removal, student transportation and emergency vehicles will be maintained during the work. 

Newtown Township reminds all those travelling through any such work zone to be extremely careful, and to follow the instructions of those workers from PECO and their sub-contractors who want to ensure everyone's safety while the project is completed.
