Indiana Twp. officials OK paving plan
Several roads will be paved in Indiana Township this spring.
Bids were opened on March 11.
Hassinger Lane; Red Maple Entrance; Indiana, Oakwood, Dennis and Timberwood drives; and Berryhill, Jacoby and Cove Run roads are set for repaving.
Youngblood Paving of Wampum was the low bidder.
Concerns about balancing the budget raised question if the complete list would be funded. However, an increase in state liquid fuel rebates brought in $18,000 more than budgeted. In addition, the bid came in under budget.
“We'll be able to complete all paving as planned for this year,” township manager Dan Anderson said.
In other matters, township officials and architects have started designing the public-works plaza on Route 910. Officials applied for a grant through the North Hills Council of Governments for improvements to make it more accessible for people with disabilities.
