Hampden Township awards $2.1 million road contract; work to start Monday
Hampden Township commissioners recently awarded a $2.1 million contract to Pennsy Supply for repairs to Orr's Bridge, Erb's Bridge and Skyport roads.
The contract includes sub-surface drainage pipes and road resurfacing to "significant portions" of the roads, the township said in a news release. While the lengthy roads are primarily in residential areas, one major township business will be affected.
The Pennsy Supply bid includes $902,980, Orr's Bridge Road; $739,159, Erb's Bridge Road and Skyport; $369,777, Salem Church Road and Brandy Lane; and $117,769, Terrace Road.
The township reported one other bidder: Handwerk Site Contractors of Hummelstown, which bid $2.6 million.
Work is scheduled to begin Monday along Orr’s Bridge and should be complete by mid-August.
Work along Erb’s Bridge and Skyport roads is scheduled to begin July 1 and be completed by the end of August. While there will be delays, access to developments and properties will be maintained throughout the project.
Armitage Golf Club -- with the on-site Caddy Shack Restaurant -- is at 800 Orr's Bridge Road and is owned by the township.
