Schwenksville Delays Sidewalks, Curbs On Main

Schwenksville Delays Sidewalks, Curbs On MainSCHWENKSVILLE PA – Replacing the sidewalk and curbs on the 100 block of Schwenksville‘s Main Street has hit a bump in the road.

Borough officials, who had hoped to complete the project this summer, will instead defer its start until next spring, the municipal newsletter reported. For that, blame another project: replacement of the street’s water main and sewer lines.

The Main Street Infrastructure Improvement Project – as the main-and-lines work is formally known – is a month behind schedule, due in part to all the rain the area has endured. The borough sewer authority probably won’t be finish those efforts until October, it estimates, and the borough said it is reluctant to pour concrete for the sidewalk and curbs during mid- to late September.

The decision is bound to disappoint property owners who anticipated the sidewalk and curbs to be in place by now. They are scheduled to receive a letter to update them on the project’s status, the borough acknowledged.

Anyone with questions or concerns about how the main-and-lines work is progressing should call the authority directly at 610-287-7772, the borough said.
