FRANKLIN SQUARE – Repairs to the damaged section of Cunningham Road have been completed, Salem Township Roads foreman Jason Entrikin reported at the trustees meeting Tuesday.

Entrikin said he and his crew have put $10,000 worth of new asphalt on the damaged section of the road, creating a new, smoother driving surface for residents coming for the upcoming winter season.

Entrikin said the repairs should continue through the winter and serve as a good foundation for the council to make more permanent chip and seal repairs next year. Trustee William Heston praised Entrikin and his crew for the quality of the repairs and thanked them for their hard work on the project.

The road has needed annual repairs since the initial damage during construction of the Walmart nearby; However, administrators are hopeful that the chip and seal process will avoid the need for such repairs once they are completed.

The need to repair the Salem Township side of Cunningham Road between State Route 344 and the Salem city limits was first discussed in July. The purchase of the blacktop for the repairs was approved in August.

The trustees will meet on September 27 at 7 p.m.
