Borough Hall parking lot re-striping

The parking lot located at 40 North Main Street will be closed Saturday, 6/22 and Sunday, 6/23 for line re-striping.  Alternative parking is offered at 101 North Main Street as well as the Oak Avenue parking lot (as you enter the lot, it is toward the left and as far back as you can go – there is an opening in the fencing to get to the walking path.)

Solicitors

During warm weather and longer days, solicitors will be out and about. No matter what they are offering, whether it is pesticide services, selling home security, replacement windows, etc., you do not need to listen.

If you are interested in talking to the solicitor, it is important to stay cautious. Authorized solicitors in Chalfont Borough must have a permit; ask to see it. Many scammers put great effort into impersonating company representatives, so even if you recognize the company, don’t put all of your trust in this stranger.

Never invite them inside your home. They may pressure you because a position inside the house makes it harder to get them to leave.

What can you do about unwanted solicitation?  Here are a few tips:

Put up a NO SOLICITING sign near your front door. This is a simple and effective way to deter most door-to-door solicitors. However, determined or desperate salespeople may still choose not to respect this message and continue to knock on your door. You can download a sign from the Forms page on the Chalfont Borough website:

If you live in Chalfont Borough, you may also register on the “Do Not Knock” list. Any solicitor applying for a permit will be given a list of addresses from the Central Bucks Regional Police Department (where they apply for their permit).  Please note:  you may have a Chalfont mailing address but not actually reside within the borough limits.

Call the police if a solicitor refuses to leave, seems suspicious, or if you feel unsafe. Chalfont Borough is served by the Central Bucks Regional Police Department at 215-345-4143.

PennDOT to Begin Rehabilitation of Butler Avenue Bridge over Neshaminy Creek in New Britain Township, Bucks County

King of Prussia, PA – Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, June 17, on a project to rehabilitate the bridge carrying Butler Avenue over a branch of Neshaminy Creek in New Britain Township, Bucks County, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today.

Due to the nature of construction, Butler Avenue will be closed and detoured between Brittany Drive and Surrey Road through the length of the rehabilitation project. Beginning Monday, June 17, through late August, Butler Avenue motorists will be directed to use Route 152 (Limekiln Pike), U.S. 202, and County Line Road. Local access will be maintained up to the construction zone.

PennDOT’s contractor will rehabilitate the bridge by replacing the existing structure with a concrete box culvert; milling and paving the roadway; installing impact attenuators; and replacing the guiderail.

Built in 1939 and reconstructed in 1963, the single-span bridge is 18 feet long and 38 feet wide. The structure carries an average of 12,359 vehicles a day.

Structure currently under construction include:

  • Route 313 (Dublin Pike/Swamp Road) over Deep Run in Hilltown Township, Bucks County.

  • Route 926 (Street Road) over Radley Run in Westtown and Thornbury townships, Chester County; and
  • Two Green Valley Road structures over tributary of Brandywine Creek in Newlin Township, Chester County.

Work on the entire project is expected to be completed in late 2020.
