KITTANNING BOROUGH RECONSTRUCTS CAMPBELL AND SAMPSON STREETS

A long-anticipated reconstruction project on Campbell and Sampson streets recently got underway in Kittanning Borough and is expected to wrap up near the end of the month.

The bulk of the reconstruction project – which includes the replacement of a number of inlets, the installation of a new inlet and the replacement of a faulty storm pipe that had been creating erosion problems – is already complete. All that remains before the project finishes up is sealing the new layer of asphalt on the reconstructed street surfaces.

The project had been initially put on hold because of delays in lining up funding. Kittanning Borough Council President Kim Fox is grateful that the project is finally near completion.

“I’d like to thank the residents of Kittanning for their patience,” Fox said. “It’s been a long time coming, but the reconstruction of these streets has made it all worthwhile – providing safer, smoother access to the surrounding neighborhood and downtown area.”

A. Folino Construction of Oakmont, was awarded the contract by the Armstrong County Board of Commissioners to complete the reconstruction of both streets for the bid amount of $91,740.96.

The project was funded with Kittanning Borough's 2014 and 2015 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Funds.
