SANATOGA PA – Residents of Deer Ridge Drive, who have endured street construction work since mid-November related to the adjacent Spring Valley Farms housing community, are getting not one but two early Christmas gifts. First, a street clean-up is planned for the holidays; and second, remaining work won’t take nearly as long as originally indicated.
Deer Ridge has been in disruption for weeks as construction crews tore up asphalt and sod to connect piping between systems there and those in Spring Valley Farms, just to the northwest. Travel lane limitations on the street, as well as reconfigured Pottsgrove school bus routes, have been in effect since Nov. 13.
But the work will temporarily end Friday (Dec. 22) and then “all construction equipment will be out of the neighborhood,” Lower Pottsgrove Township said on its Facebook page, as contractors take their holiday break. They won’t return again until Jan. 2. Construction will persist for only a few days more after that, the township promised.
It had originally estimated the installation could last until mid-January.
And ahead of the arrival of holiday guests, a sweeper will run down Deer Ridge to collect and remove construction dust. That way the guests, and Santa, can avoid dirt and dry cleaning bills.
“Thank you for your patience, and we are sorry for any inconvenience,” the township added.
