Work to Begin on Spring Garden Street Bridge

The Borough has just been informed that beginning Monday, June 12, the Spring Garden Street Bridge over Interstate 76 will be closed to both pedestrian and vehicle traffic between Chestnut Street and Spruce Lane in West Conshohocken Borough, Montgomery County.

During construction, Spring Garden Street motorists will be detoured over Crawford Avenue, Route 23 (Conshohocken State Road). Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

As part of the rehabilitation, crews will repair the existing concrete bridge deck using hydro demolition and apply a latex modified concrete overlay, reseal deck joints at the abutments, install new guiderail as well as complete other scheduled repairs.

Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the area because slowdowns will occur. The work schedule is weather dependent.

It is anticipated that the closure will be in place approximately one month.
The detour will be posted and signage installed. Access to local businesses and
driveways will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.

As the projects progresses the Borough will provide updates on the website.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN BOROUGH SEWER SYSTEM SALE IS FINALIZED

The West Conshohocken Borough Sewer System sale to the Borough of Conshohocken Authority (BCA) was finalized on June 30. The purchase price was $9,500,500. The West Conshohocken Borough Council began the deliberative process during the summer of 2016 to analyze and determine the value of the sewer conveyance system. Borough Council engaged Public Financial Management, Inc. (PFM) and Dilworth Paxson, LLP to work with the Borough through the comprehensive competitive process.

On March 28, 2017, Borough Council voted to sell the sewer conveyance system to Borough of Conshohocken Authority, who was the highest bidder. Since 1985, the West Conshohocken Borough sewer conveyance system has been connected to the Borough of Conshohocken Authority (BCA) for the purpose of the treatment and disposal of the sanitary sewage. BCA will continue using West Conshohocken Borough’s current sewer rates, which will be frozen for a three year period.

Customers of the West Conshohocken Borough Sewer System will receive a final bill for the period ending June 30, 2017 along with an updated fact sheet from the West Conshohocken Borough Sewer Fund. This final bill should be mailed to in late July.
