Leaf Collection

Leaf Collection Route 2018

Once a street and/or neighborhood is completed it will be highlighted in orange.    

The Township has began its curbside leaf collection program.  The Public Works crew starts at the eastern point of the Township on Beacon Hill and Poplar Avenue and works its’ way west ending in Sheepford Crossing.  This collection route may be repeated several times depending on the fall weather.  Shown below is the collection route.  The daily update of which roads the crew has completed will be on the front page of the website under Township News.  Please remember that leaves may also be bagged and put at curbside as part of your garbage or taken to the Public Works facility.  Collection is weather permitting.   Leaves should be raked to the curb for collection.   The picking machines are equipped with a 5 foot hose that sucks up the leaves into a holding box, which is attached to the truck. Please rake leaf rows to the street side of the curb, or within 5’ of street edge where no curb exist in long rows, and not large piles.  Leaves that are not raked out to 5 feet of the road will not be collected.   The efforts of leaf collection crews are focused on collecting bulk volumes of leaves as efficiently as possible.  It is not practical to spend time vacuuming all the leaf debris only to have more leaves accumulate a few hours later.  At the end of the season, after the last round of leaf collection, the Township street sweeper will clean the streets to remove any remaining debris.  The week of December 11th through the 15th will be the final week of leaf pickup.

STORMWATER PROGRAM FEE UPDATE

Lower Allen Township began discussions in January regarding the Stormwater Program and creation of a Stormwater Fee and has since been working closely with consultants from Arcadis, Inc.  The Board of Commissioners heard an initial presentation regarding a Stormwater Fee from Arcadis at their June 11, 2018 meeting. The overall goal of Lower Allen Township is to develop a sustainably-funded stormwater program that begins to address the long-term stormwater needs of the Township and to comply with mandates from PADEP and USEPA. 

The PowerPoint presentation that Arcadis presented on June 11, 2018, and a Frequently Asked Questions document are attached below for your information. We expect to provide updates on the overall project progress in future issues of the Township Newsletter and on the Township Website, including additional details of the stormwater program and fee. If you have any questions regarding the program please contact Rebecca Davis, MS4 Coordinator, @ rdavis@latwp.org or 717-975-7575 ext. 1010.

Bridge to be replaced as part of Public-Private Partnership

Harrisburg, PA – Construction for the bridge carrying Andersontown Road (State Route 4033) over Yellow Breeches Creek, located between Fairview and Lower Allen townships at the Cumberland-York County line, has been rescheduled to begin on Monday, August 6.  The bridge had been scheduled to close for construction on Monday, July 30, as part of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s (PennDOT) Rapid Bridge Replacement Project.

When the bridge closes for full replacement, drivers will be directed to follow a detour along State Route 4022, Lewisberry Road, Siddonsburg Road, Moores Mountain Road, State Route 4031, Grandview Avenue and State Route 2017. Construction is anticipated to be complete in late November.

This bridge is referred to as JV-308 and is one out of the 558 bridges being replaced under the Rapid Bridge Replacement Project. JV references the joint-venture partnership between Walsh/Granite, which is leading construction for the entire project.

The Rapid Bridge Replacement Project is a public-private partnership (P3) between PennDOT and Plenary Walsh Keystone Partners (PWKP), under which PWKP will finance, design, replace, and maintain the bridges for 25 years. The P3 approach will allow PennDOT to replace the bridges more quickly while achieving significant savings and minimizing impact on motorists.
