A primary responsibility of the Department is the maintenance of roadways and associated infrastructure.
Full depth repair: Full depth repair work is performed in selected areas where deterioration is occurring in an isolated stretch of pavement. It consists of excavating out the compromised layers of asphalt and inferior road base and replacing with newly compacted materials
Berming: The berm or the shoulder is the area adjacent to the roadway which can be eroded by water exiting the roadway. If not addressed in a timely manner this condition may cause the asphalt to fracture at the roads edge leading to premature road failure. The township will fill and re-grade problem areas as they occur.
Cross pipes: Cross pipes are utilized to convey storm water from one side of a road to the other. The township will inspect and clean these pipes as necessary and replace them when they have structurally deteriorated. This may include partial or full road closures. In these cases notices will be provided and signs will be posted allowing to the public to make alternative travel plans.
Drive pipes: Drive pipes are the pipes running under the driveway which allow for conveyance of water from the upstream ditch. Upon request the township will inspect the driveway culvert pipe and replace up to 30 feet of existing pipe when deemed necessary. (No new pipes due to construction will be installed by the township).
