ROAD CLOSURES BY PA TURNPIKE FOR
STEINSBURG RD - BETWEEN WENTZ & HIETER

The first car crossing the COMPLETED Milford Square Pike Bridge
Anyone traveling south on the Northeast Extension of the PA Turnpike is well aware of the widening project that is continuiing in our direction. Plans are now being developed to replace bridges and reconfigure the turnpike interchange. Milford officials and residents are working with the design team to find best alternatives.
One great concern is the impact of the current design on the immediately adjacent residences of Spinnerstown Crossing as seen below.
Salt Storage Building Completed
During the brutal winter of 2013-2014, road salt supplies ran out in many areas of the Northeastern United States including Milford Township. That was when planning began to be able to store a year's worth of salt.
Our salt building was designed using 16 foot tall precast concrete sections that can withstand the pressures created by loaders pushing salt. The top section is typical pole building construction using trusses for the roof.
Soon over 2,000 tons of salt was stocked. And just in time for 2014-15's brutal winter that nearly drained our supply.
The 2015-2016 season has been mild so far, but we are ready for what gets thrown at us.

Emerald Ash Borer
We are preparing for what looks like unavoidable devastation of Ash trees in our region. The Emerald Ash Borer is already here and tree experts say it is not a matter of IF the Ash will die, but when. The prediction is that most of our Ash trees will die in the next three to five years.
Milford is identifying trees that will become hazards and evaluating specimen trees that may justify treatment. We urge our residents to consider what impact this scourge could have. Look at trees close to houses or activity areas and determine if they Ashes. Once they show signs of dying, they will quickly reach a stage where they will be hazardous and more expensive to remove. Explore treatment options
2016 is a year to closely monitor the effects we are now seeing.
