Bryson Road
Bryson road has had a weight limit reduction due to the slip on the Hooper ridge end. 
 School Bus traffic has been rerouted for safety.  
The township has been working with FEMA since March 14, 2019 on this road in particular, and local contractors in an effort to get this slip shored up to avoid any more damage.  As you know, inclement weather has been a factor all over the county for the past several years.  cost and  availability of contractors is also a factor.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.  Update:  The Bryson Road slip will require engineering and likely core drilling.  The slip has worsened, extending itself to the creek and local contractors and resources are spread thin.  Again we thank you for your patience.  

Please avoid this area, if at all possible.  when having to travel this area, please be mindful of any changes that may have occurred.  
Thank you.

We would love to have another Tire Disposal Day as we've had in the past.
Funding is on a different cycle and won't be awarded till sometime this summer and there will be a change to the way tires are collected.  the grant will likely require a $cost$ to drop off the tire. 
 I'll let you know more when I know more about this.
