Erskine Quarry and Neshannock Avenue Extension
The 2016 projects funded under the DGLV program tackled a large number of drainage, stormwater and water quality concerns. Erskine Quarry Road located in Mahoning Township was funded under the low volume road portion of the program and Neshannock Avenue Extension project was funded under the dirt and gravel section . Both projects went to construction and were completed during the calendar year. A few of the highlights are featured below; however, if you are interested in a more comprehensive look at the improvements, please get in touch with District’s staff at 724.652.4512.
