New Polling Locations

The Montgomery County Board of Commissioners has approved a plan to consolidate polling places for the 2020 Primary Election, which will be held on Tuesday, June 2. The plan utilizes 140 public schools to accommodate Montgomery County's 352 voting districts. The change is being made to better public safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here's where Worcester residents will cast their ballots... 

  • Folks who normally vote at the Variety Club or Worcester Community Hall will vote at the Methacton High School.

  • Folks who normally vote at the Bethel Hill United Methodist Church or the Central Schwenkfelder Church will vote at the Worcester Elementary School

At this time Montgomery County plans to return to the "normal" polling places for the General Election.

In addition, absentee ballots may be delivered to secure drop-off boxes.  Click here for drop-off box locations and additional information.

Disinfectant Wipes Are Not Flushable!

Everyone is taking extra care to keep their homes as clean as possible.  Many folks are using disinfectant wipes to clean tables, countertops and other surfaces throughout the home.  But please remember that wipes of any kind can't be flushed into the sanitary sewer system.  This includes the so-called "flushable" wipes!

Disinfectant wipes can easily clog sewer pipes.  And when this happens the wastewater often has only one way to flow... back into your home!

In addition, if your property is served by a grinder pump, these wipes will (not may!) damage the grinder pump.  Eventually, the pump will fail, leaving the property owner with a big repair bill!

Please toss used wipes into the trash can... and use a plastic bag to contain used wipes for extra security.

2020 Road Improvement Program

other 2018 RP photoThis year Worcester Township will continue implementation of its annual road improvement program. This program is designed to maximize the useful life of infrastructure through an aggressive maintenance plan and appropriately-scheduled capital improvements. The program allows the Township to maintain nearly 60 miles of roads in good condition.

The maintenance plan includes pothole repair, street sweeping, roadside brush trimming, roadside swale maintenance and patch milling. The capital plan includes the replacement of culverts and storm water pipes and the resurfacing and reconstruction of roads. On average, the Township resurfaces and/or reconstructs between three and five miles of roadways each year.

In 2020 the following roads will be resurfaced: 

  • Artmar Road;
  • Berks Road, from Morris Road to Skippack Pike;
  • Credley Road;
  • Ernest Lane;
  • Ethel Avenue;
  • Hogarth Lane
  • Morris Road, from Valley Forge Road to Sunny Ayre Drive; and,
  • Old Orchard Road.

The work will take place this summer, and we'll aim to complete all by Labor Day, if permitted by Mother Nature.  Schedule information will be posted when received.

Motorists using the above-noted roads may experience delays during construction. We thank folks for their understanding and patience as we work to improve our community’s roadways.
