New Hope Borough Council unanimously approved to advertise it’s 2024 Road Program at its most recent meeting.

Officials said St. Andrews Circle, Stoney Hill Road, and Glen Eagle Road are all expected to be paved in this year’s road program. 

The council will solicit bids and award a contract at a future meeting.

For decades, the borough has performed a road pavement rotation.

During the council meeting, Mayor Larry Keller stated the public works are looking to repair other roads on a separate contract.

Additional projects could come as needed in the months ahead.

Councilman Dan Dougherty questioned whether these were the worst roads in New Hope Borough and whether they needed to be paved. He also said he’d like to know what other roads are being considered. 

Councilwoman Kelly Whitman proposed the borough holds a workshop to discuss this matter further with the public. Whitman added that it’s a “herculean task” to conduct a road inventory to assess which roads are the worst.

During the public comment session, borough resident Pamela Kerr said tourists are seeing the worst roads and that North Main Street is a mess.

The borough council is currently working to address the pothole problem. PennDOT has also begun its annual pothole repair program.
