Middletown Township’s Road Improvement Program is a 14-year plan to repave more than 100 miles of township-owned roads in the community.
The 10th year of the Road Improvement Program was recently authorized by the Middletown Township board of supervisors and will repave 3.85 miles of road. Road paving is focused on the Idlewood neighborhood, as well as select other township-owned roads. Repaving is expected to occur between now and September.
The full list of roads (all or in part) to be paved is below:
– Doublewoods Road, from Fulling Mill Road to dead end
– Knoll Avenue, entire length
– Shaw Avenue, entire length

In addition to these roads, PennDOT is busy throughout the area repaving state-owned roads.
Construction is expected to be completed by the fall. Drivers should follow posted signage as crews perform work.
The contract to complete this work was awarded to JD Morrissey, Inc. for $1.76 million. The township solicits bids for repaving several miles of township roads each year. Soliciting bids from contractors allows the township to find a competitive rate from various businesses, while avoiding overhead costs, such as equipment and seasonal personnel. Also included with this bid are the repaving of a parking lot and walking path at Twin Oaks Park, as well as paving of a lot at the Middletown Community Center for pickleball courts.
