Board of Supervisors Approves the 2023 Newtown Township Road Resurfacing Program

logo-official-colored version

The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors is committed to supporting a road resurfacing program that provides for the regular evaluation and prioritization of Township roads for repaving.

After careful evaluation and consultation with staff and the Township Engineer, Public Works recommended that the following roads be considered for inclusion on a potential Newtown Township Road Resurfacing program in 2023.  At the May 22, 2023 Board of Supervisors Meeting, the Board approved the staff recommendation for the project.  

Sealed bids were received by Newtown Township, electronically through the PennBid program ( until 11:00 AM, prevailing time, on the 21st day of June 2023.

At the June 26, 2023 meeting of the Board of Supervisors, the Board approved the Award of the project to Glasgow, Inc. with a base bid of $635,034.50 and an alternate bid of $17,048, as recommended by the Township Engineer.  Note that the alternate bid was for work requested by the Municipal Authority and was approved by that entity.

At this time, the resurfacing work is anticipated to take place in early September. 

The listing of roads that are part of the resurfacing project in 2023 are as follows:

  • Barren Road 
  • Devon Drive
  • Dutton Drive
  • Hilltop Road
  • Radnor Drive
  • Rhoads Avenue
  • Rockwood Road
  • Springhouse Lane
  • Woodhill Road 
  • Frog Hollow Drive
  • Sleepy Hollow Drive
  • Sleepy Hollow Lane

This listing of roads represents 19,630 linear feet, or approximately 3.7 miles of the township’s 52.88 miles of roads.  The recommendation is based on condition of the road surface in those areas, the work being primarily concentrated in two neighborhoods and the funding available for such work this year.

During the course of the project, the Newtown Township Road Program webpage will be updated regularly.

A decade ago, the Board of Supervisors began a commitment to implement a road program to drastically improve the conditions of our Township’s roughly 50 miles of roads.  Upon the conclusion of this year's road resurfacing project, more than half of the roads that Newtown Township maintains will have been resurfaced in that time.
