Hampton plans road repair work
Hampton officials plan to hire crews to repave or seal the cracks on nearly five miles of township roads.
But don't expect to see the road improvements until August or September.
That's when Alex Zarenko, director the Hampton Department of Community Services, expects crews to begin the work.
Hampton Council voted May 28 to accepted bids totaling $590,691 from Shields Asphalt Paving of Richland and Youngblood Paving Inc. of Wampum, Lawrence County, to perform the road repairs.
Shields Asphalt Paving will repave nearly three miles of township streets, including Herron Road, Haberlein Road, Josephine Drive, Arnold Drive, Banks School Road, Marie Drive, Hamlet Drive and Leroy Drive.
Youngblood Paving will seal the cracks on nearly two miles of township streets, including East Bardonner Road — between East Hardies Road and the Pennsylvania Turnpike overpass — Richland Road, Topnick Drive, Turner Road and Community Park Road.
In other road-related business, Hampton Council members also voted May 28 to buy at least 8,500 tons of salt for the coming winter — through the North Hills Council of Governments — for $60.42 per ton.
Council members also voted May 28 to approve a request from St. Mary of the Assumption Parish to extend the township's approval of the parish's revised site plan for a proposed mausoleum on the church grounds.
