Two roads that diverge in the Township could soon receive upgrades that will make all the difference for improved traffic flow.
The Board of Supervisors at their October 29 meeting gave approval for engineering upgrades on Ehrman Road and Freshcorn Road.
On Ehrman Road, engineers from Herbert, Rowland & Grubic Inc. will design and obtain the necessary permitting for a right turn lane at the intersection with Route 19. The goal is to have this lane installed before the opening of the new Seneca Valley Elementary School in mid-2021. The Township is expecting a contribution from a proposed development at this intersection to assist in this project.
Meanwhile, HRG will also design improvements on Freshcorn Road from the intersection of Madison Heights Drive to Glen Rape Road. The last Township road in need of significant repair, Freshcorn has seen increased traffic as a connector to Jackson Township.
The project will also include widening of the cartway and is expected to be completed in 2021.
