The 2015 Road Resurfacing Project kicked off on Thursday morning as road crews got to work resurfacing 32.7 miles of Bristol Township roadways. Council President Craig Bowen was on location to witness the kickoff of the long-awaited road paving project.

From 2012 to 2014, the Township had already invested over $9 million to pave 68 of the 177 miles of Township highways, and will invest another $4.5 million for the 2015 Road Program. By the end of 2015, Bristol Township will be one full year ahead of schedule, and will have paved 435 roads or 101 miles of Township highways.

Bristol Township's 2015 Street Sweeping Program
Street sweeping begins on Monday, April 6, 2015. Help us do a better job on street sweeping day. Please do not rake yard waste such as branches, twigs or leaves into the roadway or along your curbs. Also, please do not park your vehicles on the roadway during the estimated sweeping week for your section. An effective street sweeping program is important, because a clean swept street means a more attractive neighborhood. Also, removing debris from curbs and roadways means less debris and pollution goes down storm drains and into Township waterways. Thank you for your help in making the 2015 street sweeping program a success. Please call the Public Works Department at (267) 812-2922 for more information.
