Public Works Department
The Towamencin Township Public Works Department strives at keeping township roads and parks safe and accessible. They perform a diverse range of duties throughout the township. They are responsible for maintaining 76 miles of roadway, 300 acres of open space, 9 parks, and the general maintenance of police vehicles, township vehicles, equipment and properties.
The Township periodically cleans out ditches, grades shoulders, and trims trees along the roadway in front of your home. All of the work is done within the township right-of-way. Please drive slowly and pay attention to the flagmen and signs when driving through work zones.
The Public Works Department functions under the direct management of the Public Works Director, David Hillmantel.

There are no scheduled dates for this project at this time due to lack of funding. Although a large portion of the engineering has been completed and right-of-way acquired through land developments, there is still significant final plans that need to be prepared. This project includes intersection, roadway and storm drainage improvements on Sumneytown Pike from Kriebel Road to Supplee Road (Upper Gwynedd Township) and Valley Forge Road from Boyd Avenue to Jacks Circle.
