Franklin Boulevard Water Main Break Fixed, Road Repaired


Township Manager Robert Vornlocker told the council it saved about $100,000 by waiting a few days to fix a damaged piece of road on Franklin Boulevard.

A water main break over the Memorial Day weekend has been fixed, and the damaged road repaired.

Township manager Robert Vornlocker told the Township Council at its May 27 meeting that the work did not cost the $75,000 allowed in an emergency resolution it eventually passed for the repair.

Vornlocker said a 16-inch pipe burst on May 25, and “compromised the road for about 150 feet” near Highland Avenue.

The road could have been repaired on Sunday, but to do so would have cost an additional $100,000, Vornlocker said. He said the decisions as made to close the road and wait until holiday overtime did not have to be paid to workers.

The road was reopened at about 6 p.m. on May 27, he said.
