The Newlin Township Board of Supervisors is pleased to announce the Township has been awarded, by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, a Multi-Modal Grant for the restoration of Laurel Road. The grant of $754,354.00 will be for work on Laurel Road which was severely damaged by an un-named storm of April 30 - May 1, 2014.  The road, portions of which closely follow the contours of the west branch of Brandywine Creek, has been closed  to through traffic since the storm because of the extensive damage that occurred.  The closure has been especially problematic for residents of Laurel Road and troublesome for emergency service providers who have experienced added minutes to their response time to that area of the Township. The Supervisors hope to have engineering drawings complete in early 2018.


The Board wishes to express our appreciation to State Senator Tom Killion and State Representative Eric Roe for their support of the grant application.


Newlin Township Board of Supervisors,
