Road Department

The Road Department in Neshannock Township is responsible for over sixty-nine miles of paved roadways or 138 lane miles. The work required for maintaining safe and acceptable streets and roads is completed by a road force of five employees reporting to the Director of Public Works. The various tasks included in road maintenance involve sign maintenance, berming, ditching, patching and complete overlays of the road surfaces, litter control, brush control, street sweeping, maintenance of township owned drainage systems, guiderail maintenance, and snow control. The township does not maintain any state roadways. State roads located within the township include: Wilmington Road-State Route 18, Pulaski Road, Old Pulaski Road, Plank Road (from Highland to Shenango), Mercer Road, Maitland Lane, and Mitchell Road (from Route 18 to Route 376). The township is responsible for all traffic signals located within its boundaries–even though all of the signals are on State owned highways; the Township sub contracts to maintain them and also pays for the electric to operate them.
