Lower Nazareth Township Manager Wants Newburg Road Fixed
Lower Nazareth Township manager wants PennDOT to give Newburg Road a complete overhaul.
The deteriorating condition of Newburg Road in Lower Nazareth Township has pushed the township's manager, Timm Tenges, to write a letter to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and to lodge a complaint with state representatives.
“I was making them aware it’s lousy,” Tenges said at Wednesday's Board of Supervisors meeting.
Tenges explained that PennDOT has issued a list of roads slated for improvement, but Newburg isn’t on it. He would like to see the road completely resurfaced, not just patched.
In other business, Tenges told board members that DHD Ventures and Griffin Land/Riverbend Holdings both requested authorization to begin improvements. Improvements items include storm water drainage maintenance and minor road repairs. Both companies were granted permission to begin the needed work.
Township supervisors also granted three security balance reductions. The first reduction was for the new Wawa on Easton Nazareth Highway (Route 248) for the completed installation of signage and walkway from the convenience store to the restaurants across the development’s entranceway. The security was reduced to a balance of $527.
Lower Nazareth Realty Partners, which is also involved with the Wawa site, completed a parking lot expansion. Supervisors reduced their security from about $16,404 to $1,373.75.
The third reduction was for Dr. George Manja at the new Northstar Urgent Care on Nazareth Pike. The security balance was reduced to $4,603, as the new medical center nears completion.
