Repairs complete on Derry Township road
Derry Township supervisors announced on Tuesday that Bradenville School Road is open to traffic after being closed for nearly a year because of a collapsed box culvert.
In July, supervisors awarded the contract for replacing the culvert to Gary Metzinger, of Pittsburgh. Metzinger bid $112,409 for the project.
“It opened (Tuesday) afternoon. The guide rail was put in (Tuesday), and my guys went down and moved some things around so it could be open,” Supervisors Chairman Vince DeCario said. “It's been closed down since March, I think, of last year, and it's finally open for traffic.”
In other news:
• The township mailed about 5,200 maps of the municipality within the past two weeks, DeCario said. The last time the township distributed maps was in 2009. Maps are available at the township office.
• Residents should not shovel or plow snow from driveways or sidewalks onto township roads, and those who continue to do so could be cited.
“We're having some issues with the rights of way on the streets,” DeCario said. “For some reason, they think they can just push it out on the street after we go through. ... Push it to the left or right, don't just push it out on the road and let it lay there.”
Residents should move cars, portable basketball hoops and other obstructions from roadways during winter so snowplows have fewer obstacles to maneuver around during snowstorms.
Bradenville fire Chief Mark Piantine said residents should avoid piling snow in front of fire hydrants.
• Supervisors approved a motion to review the O'Barto subdivision along McFarland Road contingent upon the approval of the Westmoreland County Department of Planning and Development.
