Rep. Nelson Hosts Town Hall on Bethlehem Pike Construction and Flood Mitigation

Watch the full meeting

This week, we held a town hall meeting in Springfield Township to provide residents in the area surrounding and down-stream of Cisco Park and Hillcrest Pond with an update on the coming stormwater remediation efforts. Township staff, commissioners, and PennDOT representatives were all on hand to address the next steps in our efforts to reinforce our literally crumbled infrastructure so that it may better withstand our current weather realities.

As a recap and a heads up to the entire district, look for some construction along Bethlehem Pike around the area of Gordon Lane, Brookside Road, and Montgomery Avenue during the month of February and again around April or May to replace crumbled 100+ year old stormwater pipes and inlets.

Feel free to check out this video of the meeting to get caught up on the discussion and, as always, contact my office, the township staff, or your local commissioners for more information.

There are several other neighborhoods that have reached out to us regarding flood issues. We have not forgotten about you in the slightest. We are working to get caught up with the local municipalities on any pertinent background information as well as identifying plans or processes to bring forward. We will continue to advocate and will schedule additional townhalls as soon as is productive.
