Four miles of roads in Bala Cynwyd, Belmont Hills and Penn Valley are set to be repaved starting in August, after Lower Merion's Board of Commissioners approved a contractor for the townshipwide summer repaving program at Wednesday night's meeting.
The first of two phases of repaving, including roads in other parts of Lower Merion, should begin about June 18 and end July 20.
The second phase, which includes roads in Bala Cynwyd, Belmont Hills and Penn Valley, should run from mid-August to mid-September. (See a complete list of township roads to be paved here.)
After some questions from commissioners about contributions from Aqua America (which contributes money when roads are to be repaved by the township, rather than repaving just a patch of road after work is done), Joseph E. Sucher & Sons, Inc. was unanimously approved to complete both phases for about $199,000.
Narberth-Bala Cynwyd area roads to be repaved during that time, as well as some in Merion Station on the north side of Montgomery Avenue, are listed below and shown in the interactive MapQuest map attached to this article.Street Segment Length (yards) Width Cynwyd Road Montgomery Avenue to Bala Avenue 1,127 26 Bryn Mawr Avenue Montgomery Avenue to Bala Avenue 1,141 24 Putnam Road General Lafayette Road to Meeting House Lane 980 25 Revere Road General Lafayette Road to Meeting House Lane 2,934 14 Hamilton Road Standish Road to Revere Road 1,988 12 Maplewood Avenue Revere Road to Montgomery Avenue 1,750 30 Hagys Ford Road * Old Gulph Road to Fairview Road 2,284 30 Fairview Road Highland Avenue to Price Street 770 24 Ebenezer Avenue Highland Avenue to Price Street 480 34 Jefferson Street Marywatersford Road (House #90) 1,329 28
