The Concord Township Public Works Highway Department consists of five employees who maintain 50+ miles of township roads. Depending on the season, their responsibilities include road repair, snow removal, property and equipment maintenance, tree trimming, traffic control, and road inspections.
Any issues with township roads can be directed to Public Works Supervisor Chris Baines via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Flashing Traffic Signal – Treat as four-way stop
Residents are reminded that if a traffic signal is not working or on flash due to an interruption in power, motorists are to treat it as a four-way stop. Completely stop at the intersection and proceed only when you know other turning and approaching vehicles, bicycles, or pedestrians have stopped.
Keep Township Roadways Clear
Residents are reminded that dumpsters, mulch, pavers, and/or stones are not to be deposited onto township roadways. These items on the roadway present a hazard to motorists and pedestrians. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that any such materials are deposited onto your driveway.
The Public Works Department makes every effort to clear snow in a timely manner. Upon being called out, the crews will make an initial pass to open all roads. As the hours and days progress, crews will return to open the roads even more. Only township roads are cleared; state roads (see below) are cleared by PennDOT crews.
Residents can facilitate snow removal by not parking cars on township roads during a snowfall, especially cul-de-sacs. When clearing your driveways, do not deposit the snow out onto township roads. This can cause hazardous conditions to other motorists.
Keep approach / exit to mailbox clear
The US Postal Service asks that you clear the full approach and exit to your mailbox. Due to safety standards, mail carriers are not permitted to back up or exit their vehicle at the mailbox. If your mailbox is not properly cleared, mail cannot be delivered safely. Mail delivery will resume once access is clear. Township Public Works personnel is not permitted to clear mailboxes. If snow is a problem at your mailbox, consider putting your mail on hold and pick it up from your local post office. Make a hold request by calling 1-800-275-8777 or visit the USPS website.
Residents’ mailboxes are located in the right-of-way. Occasionally, the weight of wet, heavy snow being pushed by a plow will damage an insecure mailbox or post. The township is not responsible for damage from the weight of snow being moved from the road. Always insure that your mailbox and post installation are secure.
