Among the larger local road projects was Grossman Road from Austin Road to Herman Road where drainage and limestone work was completed. The township spent about $97,600 on road projects in 2011.
There are three projects up for discussion.
- Buss Road to 1.2 miles west of Lamb Road, culvert replacement and restoration with a yet to be determined price tag.
- Township-wide additional limestone on the roads at $12.48 per ton, which includes labor, equipment and materials costs on roads to be determined by the township supervisor and the Road Commission district foreman for the area.
- Township-wide additional gravel on roads at a cost of $10.39 per ton, which includes labor, equipment and material costs. The locations would be determined by the township supervisor and the Road Commission district foreman for the area.
Manchester Township has 47.05 miles of certified gravel roads and last year the township opted to have three applications of dust control applied to all of them. One application costs $17,220.30.
