Sanatoga’s TPD Inc. Shares In Road Relocation Honors

SANATOGA PA – A Sanatoga PA-based engineering firm is sharing in honors bestowed upon the Conestoga Landfill in New Morgan (PA) Borough, for work done there that recently was designated as “Erosion Control Project of the Year” by the Berks County Conservation District.

Traffic Planning and Design Inc. (TPD), 2500 E. High St., Pottstown PA, provided roadway, storm water management, and erosion ad sediment designs, environmental permitting, and construction management and inspection services for the landfill’s award-wining Shiloh Road Relocation Project, TPD spokeswoman Nikki Milholin reported Monday (May 23, 2011).

Conestoga owner Republic Services wanted to relocate a mile-long portion of Shiloh Road, which ran through its property, and allow it to expand the landfill and continue serving local communities. It hired TPD as project manager for all design, permitting, and agency coordination tasks needed for construction.

TPD ensured the project met earlier environmental permitting conditions for landfill expansion, as well as future construction of landfill cells, Milholin said. It was designed to comply with borough, conservation district, Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, and watershed environmental standards.

Other members of the project team, Milholin added, were Cornerstone Environmental Group, Spotts Stevens and McCoy, Taylor GeoServices, and Drinker Biddle and Reath. Construction was completed roughly a year after starting the design, and within the original cost estimate.
