Bassett Engineering just closed out the reconstruction of the 2,550-foot long 2-lane Shirk Road in Hartleton Borough of Union County. Shirk is a suburban/rural road in the southwest corner of the Borough. PA DCED Commonwealth Financing Authority awarded a Multimodal Transportation Fund Grant of $251,000 to Hartleton for this project. The Borough would not have been able to construct this project without that funding. Shirk was reconstructed using conventional methods by removing the existing road to subgrade, installing stone subbase plus asphalt base and wearing course pavement. All work is now completed including roadside ditches and reestablishing vegetation. Schlegel Excavating, Inc. did a fine job reconstructing Shirk Road. Check out the final photos!
