LOCAL ROAD CLOSURES

UPDATE: PASD has informed the Township that the W. Pothouse Road opening has been delayed to May 23 due to the heavy rains over the last two weeks.
As part of the Phoenixville Area School District Early Learning Center project, a new sanitary sewer system will be installed this month. For the installation, a section of West Pothouse Road will be shut down from April 15th to May 16th. The purpose of this road closure is to safely install the sewer system. West Pothouse Road will be completely closed for the duration of this project from Meadowbrook Lane to State Road (Route 29). Work hours for the project will be 7:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Monday through Saturday. A map of the detours in place during the sewer installation is available here. Please contact the Phoenixville Area School District at (484) 927-5000 with questions regarding the sewer installation and road closure.
