Drivers are experiencing heavy traffic on Lloyd and Manor Avenues in Caln Township during peak travel times. Flaggers are directing traffic in the area as crews install sewers for the new Royal Farms convenience store currently under construction on Manor Ave. The contractor for the project hopes to complete the sewer work in the next two weeks and will make every effort to minimize the disruption. They will return at a later date to do final blacktop repair. Caln Township officials will continue to monitor the situation.
Interested in weighing in on the future vision of Chesco? Chester County Commissioners have launched a public survey in an effort to gather input from the public about the development of Landscapes3, the next comprehensive plan for Chesco. The survey seeks to gather feedback on several issues, including growth, open space and environment, sense of place, modern infrastructure, transportation, the economy, healthy lifestyles, and housing options.
