The Public Works Department maintains the township roads and parks in Upper Providence. With a budget of more than $4,000,000 and 85 miles of roads to maintain, the 13 member department stays busy keeping up with road repair, mowing and planting parkland, as well as being on-call 24/ 7 when snow and bad weather hits.
Call Before You Dig
When you break ground, be sure to avoid disturbing underground utilities. Call Pennsylvania’s One Call System hotline (811 or 800-242-1776) three working days before you dig on your property. It's the law!
Seasonal Work Schedule
Because most of the work occurs outdoors, the Public Works Department's priorities change with the seasons.
