Railroad Street Drainage Project


Recently the long awaited improvements to the very dangerous Railroad Street Drainage culvert have been completed. With the help of Senator John Yudichak, Representative Gerald Mullery along with the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority the Newport Township Board of Commissioners were able to secure over $300,000.00 to bring this project to fruition. The macadam walkway that has been installed is intended just for that purpose it is not to be used for a parking or driving area. I am asking your help in trying to enforce these rules. By avoiding parking and driving on the pavement this will extend the life of the new macadam. Thank you for your co-operation in regards to this matter.
