The Winslow Township Supervisors expressed their concern over damage being done to township roads at their regular meeting on June 10.
Due to numerous road construction projects in the area, truck drivers are looking for alternate routes and are driving on township roads causing damage.
Stewart Road west of Reynoldsville is a particular problem at this time. The supervisors stated the road is posted with weight limit signs, but that doesn’t seem to be enough. They now plan to post larger signs warning large trucks not to use the road.
Supervisor Marty Strouse suggested borough residents get involved.
“If they see a large truck on a township road, they should report it to the township office,” he said. The number for the office is 653-2309.
In other action, Township Secretary Mary Greeley informed the supervisors that the water permit renewal is due in June of 2020. She said it is a lengthy process and that the application must be filed six months before the due date.
Greeley said she would send the paperwork to the township’s engineers, the EADS Group of Altoona, to get the process started.
