Mt. Pleasant Township supervisors are gearing up for summer roadwork.

Road crews will begin tarring and chipping township roads on July 15, Chairman Frank Puskar said this week.

In the meantime, crews have been out working on blacktopping roads affected by the sewer lines installed in the Norvelt, Calumet and Hecla areas of the township over the past two years.

Supervisor Jack Rutkowski said one such area is West Laurel Circle in Norvelt.

“The bond was signed off on West Laurel Circle in December, and now the road has sunk, so we are going to go ahead and take care of it,” Rutkowski said.

Puskar said the township will be taking legal action over this and other roads in the near future.

Supervisor Duane Hutter asked residents to be aware of the increase of children in the township during the daytime hours. “Be very careful when driving with the kids being out of school and running around,” Hutter said.

He also reminded residents that the township's Learn To Swim program and the Summer Recreation Program in Acme are underway. The Norvelt Summer Recreation Program will begin July 15.

The next recycling date for township residents is July 5.
