The Township of Tredyffrin has begun urgent sewer upgrades that will cause several road closures around Valley Forge National Historical Park. The road closures are expected to be in effect through the end of July. The repairs are part of the Wilson Road Force Main- a sanitary sewer pipeline which runs for 3.6 miles through Valley Forge, paralleling Valley Creek and the Schuylkill River. Although the pipe runs through the park, it serves the residents of six municipalities upstream of the park. Route 252 (Valley Forge Road) from the Knox Covered Bridge to Route 23 will be included in the road closures. The Knox Parking Lot on Route 252 will remain open to park visitors throughout construction.
The rehabilitation of the sewer system will consist of improving the 49,000 linear feet of gravity sanitary sewers, along with the Darby Road Pump Station, as well as, the Wilson Road Pump Station. Additional repairs will also include the Force Mains on Lancaster Avenue and Glenn Avenue. The factors leading up to the overhaul involved several sewer spills, within the span of three years. The result was an estimated18 million gallons of untreated sewage feeding into the creek and river. Four participating municipalities will incur varied costs for the rehabilitation, which will be decided according to their average usage.
