Broken Paver Slightly Delays Township Resurfacing

Broken Paver Slightly Delays Township Resurfacing
Paver repairs in progress Tuesday morning

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Township Director of Utilities John Fogel had high hopes Tuesday morning (July 6, 2021) that workers could complete their asphalt repaving chores on Welsh Drive, Hause Avenue, and Christina Court by day’s end. But, as Fogel would tell you with a smile, into every life a little rain must fall.

The paving machine broke. As a result, township Manager Ed Wagner told the Lower Pottsgrove Board of Commissioners during their meeting Tuesday night, the remaining work will be completed Wednesday (July 7).

“Broke” is a summation of what happened to the paver. In fact, its left-side track went off its wheels, leaving it temporarily immobile. Such things happen occasionally, Fogel said at the scene on Welsh Drive, and usually take two-to-four hours to fix. The delay pushed back the completion by less than a day, Wagner explained to commissioners.

Otherwise, he added, this year’s paving projects have gone smoothly.
