Construction Update (05/06/19). Old Easton Road bridge over Pine Run. Beginning at 9:00am, Tuesday, May 7 and continuing Wednesday, May 8 the contractor replacing the bridge will be driving 10 – 20 foot long pile posts that the new bridge will be positioned/built on. The driving will consist of the use of a large crane with a heavily weighted hammer that will rhythmically raise and drop to set the posts in the ground. Thank you for your patience as we accomplish this next step in the construction process.
The above named bridge will be closed on or around April 15, 2019 for six (6) to nine (9) months. The bridge is scheduled for complete replacement. The official PADOT approved detour will utilize Sawmill Road, Route 313 and Old Easton Road. Old Easton Road will be open between Route 313 and the Water Wheel Tavern on the south side of the bridge. Old Easton Road will be open to the 2 residences south of Sawmill Road between Sawmill and the bridge. More information and reminders will be sent out as the date approaches.

Important News About Open Burning..Effective February 22, 2012 the Township has officially rescinded its Open Burning Policy and will no longer issue permits. This action is a result of formal notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PaDEP) that we are a mandated community under Act 101 and thus any burning is regulated by the state and we cannot supersede its authority. Based on the state law, the only property owners permitted to burn are those considered to be "working farms", defined as the production of agricultural commodities in their unmanufactured state on the premises of the farm operation. Campfires and ceremonial fires are also permitted. Yard waste is NOT permitted to be burned. Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, garden residue, tree trimmings, chipped shrubbery, and other vegetative materials. Because the Township is a mandated community we are responsible for the enforcement of this Act, and will do what is necessary to ensure that the Township and our residents remain in compliance with it.(Because of the volume of inquiries, we have decided to leave this on the website.)
