Borough council members ask for your patience and understanding during these annual infrastructure improvement projects. It is a short-term price to pay for long-term improvements.
General Procedure for Paving Projects
As a courtesy, Ben Avon informs all utilities of upcoming paving projects at least one year in advance. The goal is to have any repairs or replacements completed prior to repaving the streets. The utilities save because they do not have to pay for restoration. The Borough saves in its investment by ensuring that the quality and durability of the new streets will not be compromised with future utility work cuts and patching. As with any major construction project, this requires patience and understanding as the borough is captive of the utility’s calendar and budget. Sewer integrity inspections must also be conducted prior to any street paving so that any problems found can made prior to paving.
Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during our neighborhood improvement projects. For Ben Avon specific construction questions you may contact the Ben Avon Public Works department at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 412.761.5311.
