TOWNSHIP- Have you noticed the sunken in man hole on Dixon Avenue in DuBois? Repairs
should begin Wednesday. This will be a PennDOT and Sandy township project.
Township manager Dave Monella said, This is an area that has settled before
in the past. There is a township manhole there and we are not quite sure what
is happening there. The sewer is ok. The main sewer lines are fine but the
road around the manhole is giving way.
On Wednesday PennDot will be in there with equipment
and man power. They will be digging that up. And we are going to assisting them
with getting some Flowable Fill, he said. They are going to back fill that
with better drainage materials and then we are going to fill the whole thing up
with Flowable Fill. We are going to encase our line with concrete and then fill
it up to the road level with concrete.
are finishing the drainage work on Mountain Run Road and will be ready to pave
soon. Paving projects should begin in the next month including the completion
of the Denton avenue project.
