Thanks to Ashley Hazlett, the Venango Conservation District Dirt Gravel and Low Volume Roads Technician, this blog entry will showcase a Dirt and Gravel Roads program project in Victory Township. The Dennison Run Road project spans across 400 feet of a hilly dirt road. The section in question was consistently having drainage issues and was losing road surface during storm events.
The funding requested for this project was $13.500.00. This funding helped provide for the addition of three new cross pipes. Ditches and banks were also stabilized and road fill was added to maintain a proper crown and a safe driving surface. The estimated value of the project is $18,913.00.
Victory Township anticipates submitting an application for further Dirt & Gravel Roads program funding to continue drainage and road surface improvements to the upper hill area of the road.
