Weisenberg News

It’s been an unusually wet summer and we realize that many residents are struggling to keep up with maintaining their yards. Our office has received multiple complaints regarding residents blowing grass onto roads. While to some this may seem like “no big deal”, excessive amounts of grass on roads actually does create multiple issues, especially when the grass is thick and wet. Thick wet grass causes slick and unsafe driving conditions especially for motorcycles and bicycles. It can also cover the painted lines on the road or cause motorists to drive into oncoming traffic to avoid driving through it. Grass on roads also has a negative impact on our streams. Many residents treat their lawns with fertilizers & pesticides. The grass that contains these items get into inlets and storm pipes which lead to streams. We ask all residents to please be aware of these items and keep their grass clippings in their own yard.

Trick or Treat for Weisenberg Township will be Saturday, October 27th, 2018, 6pm-8pm. (No rain date) Going around your neighborhood for goodies has been a pastime that many children get excited for. Dressing up as your favorite superhero or princess is a common to see. Be careful when crossing streets and have a flashlight or a glow stick on hand to light your way.

The Old US 22 Road swap between Weisenberg Township & PennDOT was completed on June 4th. PennDOT’s Road Swap program allows municipalities to trade certain higher volume roads for a lower volume PennDOT road. Weisenberg Township has been working with PennDOT for several years to accomplish this trade. The traffic on Old 22 has increased, especially since it serves as the official detour route for Interstate 78. In addition to the trade, PennDOT also provides funding to upgrade the new roads taken by the municipality.

As of 6/4/18, Old US 22 (full length from Upper Macungie Twp. line to Greenwich Twp. line) is now a PennDOT owned road. New Smithville Rd (full length from Golden Key Rd. to Old 22) and Kecks (from Seipstown Rd to Old 22) are Weisenberg Township Owned Roads.
