Grants Awarded

The Londonderry Township Public Works Department was recently awarded two grants for road improvements. These grants are from the Dauphin County Soil Conservation District’s Low Volume Dirt and Gravel Road program.

The first grant is to replace a storm pipe on Foxianna Road between E. Harrisburg Pike and Krepps Road. There is a deteriorated metal pipe that will be replaced with a bottomless arch structure. The road will also be raised approximately 3 feet, since the new pipe is larger than the existing pipe. The total estimated cost for this project is $207,718.50. The grant is $115,318.50. The Township will be responsible for $92,400.00, which will be paid for through the State Allocated Liquid Fuels Program.

All work will be performed in house, except for paving of the roadway and installing guiderail. That work will be contracted out.

This project is expected to start mid-June of 2021 and have a complete road closure of up to 3 weeks. Detour signs will be posted.

The second grant is to replace storm pipes on Foxianna Road at Felker Road, and improve the drainage along the north side of Foxianna Road east of Felker Road. The total cost of this project is $6,725.47. We received a grant for $3,716.80. The Township will pay $3,008.67.

We will be removing one storm pipe from under Foxianna Road and installing one under Felker Road and replacing one under Foxianna Road.

This project will be performed entirely by the Township Public Works Department. The scheduled start date will be Spring – Summer of 2021. Daytime closures only and a detour will be posted.
