The good news is that Pennsylvania-American Water Co.'s waterline replacement project along Greentree Road has been completed. The bad news is that restoration of the sidewalks and curbs has just begun.
Though that work is expected to be done by mid-November, manager David Montz announced Monday that the work will be a temporary fix because the main line trench will be opened up again in the spring for about two months to replace a 10-inch concrete base under the road.
When that work is done, the road will be milled and repaved.
Since Greentree Road is a state road, it is hoped the state will help with the repaving costs, he added.
"If we can get them to pave all of Greentree Road, we should be done for 15 years," he said, noting he plans to encourage the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to work with the utility company.
The waterline project involved removing a 16-inch line and replacing it with a 24-inch line between McMonagle and Carnahan roads.
