HEADQUARTERS ROAD BRIDGE PROJECT
In Oct. 2018, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) filed a complaint (Case#: 2:18-cv-04508) in US District Court against PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration with regard to the Headquarters Bridge Project, stating the defendants have unlawfully determined that the bridge must be replaced with a new 2-lane concrete bridge. The DRN maintains that the existing bridge can be rehabilitated. PennDOT engineers have determined that the deterioration is too severe and there are two options: 1) Construct a new two-lane bridge, which PennDOT would retain ownership and responsibility. 2) Construct a new one-lane bridge, which would require Tinicum Township taxpayers to take ownership and responsibility. Revised 1/28/19

PENNDOT ROADSIDE SPRAYING OPT OUT
Residents who live along a state highway/road can choose not to have PennDOT spray herbicides, by filling out a vegetation management permit. Property owners must cut back and maintain their stretch of vegetation according to PennDOT standards as indicated on the permit. PennDOT will log it onto a color-coded GPS map that informs contractors where to spray. Permits should be mailed to: PennDOT, District 6-0, 7000 Geerdes Blvd, King of Prussia, PA 19406.
