Pitcairn road crews to repair curbs, seal cracks this month

Road improvements this month will affect street parking throughout Pitcairn, according to borough Manager Malisa Migliori.

One-day curbside parking restrictions will be rolled out throughout the month as work crews perform maintenance work on all borough streets.

Migliori said the goal is to complete between five and seven roads per day.

Homeowners will be notified of the work schedule via door hangers and Channel 4, the local community access cable channel, Migliori said.

“It is going to be an inconvenience, but it will preserve the streets,” Migliori said at the Sept. 24 borough council meeting.

Migliori said the road crews will seal cracks in the pavement and repair curbs.

Work also will include weed cutting and leaf blowing.

Pitcairn Council President John Prucnal said the maintenance is long overdue.

“In the past, we've discussed doing this, and I don't think it's been done for a while,” Prucnal said.

“It definitely will help improve and keep the roads in better shape.”
