Hampton plans road repair work

| Wednesday, June 4, 2014, 9:01 p.m.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
