PennDOT recently announced plans to resurface PA State Road 4039. PennDOT’s project – tentatively planned for 2024 – will bring much needed improvements to the state-owned sections of N. 5th Street and W. Market Street in Perkasie Borough.
Property owners on the affected sections of N. 5th St and W. Market St are advised that curbs, sidewalks and driveway aprons on SR4039 will need to meet the specifications in Perkasie Borough Code in advance of PennDOT’s resurfacing project. Borough administration has sent a written notice to property owners on the following roads to advise them of the project timelines and their responsibilities with regard to curb, sidewalk and apron remediation.
- N 5th Street from W. Blooming Glen Drive /Borough Line to W. Market Street
- W. Market Street from N 7th Street to N. Ridge Road
The Borough will conduct inspections of curbs, sidewalks, and driveway aprons along State Road 4039 in the spring of 2022, then send out detailed inspection reports to property owners where the curb, sidewalk or driveway requires repair or replacement. Property owners who elect to use a private contractor will need to complete repairs by July 2023. Property owners who elect to use the Borough’s contractor can expect to see the work complete during the summer of 2023.
The Borough will offer a financing plan for those who participate in the Borough’s repair program in 2023. An estimate of the costs of having the Borough do the work and more information about the financing plan will be sent to property owners in the summer of 2022.
Perkasie Borough is providing advance notice of this project because of the number of properties involved, the lead time it may take property owners to obtain quotes and schedule work, and because many of the affected properties have substantial road frontage and the cost of bringing curbs, sidewalks and aprons into compliance could be significant.
A complete copy of the Borough’s Specifications for Reconstruction and/or Repair of Curb and Sidewalks can be found on the Borough website https://perkasieborough.org/code-of-ordinances/, or is available at Perkasie Borough Hall, 620 W. Chestnut St.
Questions about the Curb & Sidewalk project on PA SR4039 may be directed to Perkasie Borough’s Public Works Director at (215)257-6860.
The Liberty Bell Trail Feasibility Study 2020 Update has been completed. This project was financed, in part, by grants from the Community Conservation Partnership Program, Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund, under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation; and the Greenways, Trails & Recreation Program under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. Gilmore & Associates completed the update to the 2005 study in December of 2020 and the executive summary and maps are below. This was a multi municipal project and we thank our surrounding communities for their participation and encouragement. This will be a major accomplishment for the trail system and we hope to get started with smaller projects and gain additional grant funding to make this Corridor of History a reality.
