ACTIONS BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS TO PROMOTE PUBLIC SAFETY 

The Board authorized the expenditure of $18,675.00 to Longs Asphalt for the construction of speed calming devices also known as speed humps on Wickersham Road in the area of the Elk Ridge School. This resulted after Township residents expressed a concern about the safety of school children on the road in the vicinity of the school. The speed humps are scheduled to be constructed before school starts in September.

Clay 34KV Extension Project Summary 

PECO will be construction a 34KV line extension in Southern Chester County to increase capacity and improve reliability for the area. As part of the project, we are adding additional remote sectionalizing capabilities. The cost of this project is $5 .96M.

We will be constructing a total of 8 miles of pole line, upgrading approximately 7 miles and constructing approximately 1 mile of new facilities. This will include approximately 100,000 ft. of new conductor, 90 new distribution transformers and 200 new PECO poles. Verizon will be replacing approximately 50 poles in support of this project.

This work starts in West Nottingham Township at Christine Rd and Stoney Lane, runs along Christine Rd to Chrome Rd into East Nottingham Township. The project continues along Chrome Rd (becomes State Rd) into Elk township ending at State Rd and Lewisville Rd (route 472). Tree trimming will be done as needed along this route. PECO will work with the customers to address trimming needs/concerns.

Contract crews and PECO crews will be performing this work. Contractors will be starting construction in early July, 2014 and will be working on this project in this area until the Spring of 2015. They will be working out of a fenced construction area outside of PECO’s Nottingham substation. We are starting construction in West Nottingham Township at Christine Rd. and Stoney Lane. Poles will start to be spot delivered along the road and material will start to be delivered to our work area in June for this first stage of construction.
