Carrolltown Borough Municipal Authority, Cambria County
Keller Engineers worked with Carrolltown Borough Municipal Authority and PennDOT District 9-0 to make extensive improvements to the Borough’s water and sewer system prior to the Route 219 reconstruction project.
The project involved relocation of 300 LF of 8” water and water services, with some being lowered to avoid conflict with the Rt. 219 reconstruction project. The location and depth of the sewer service lateral, which crossed Rt. 219, could not be located due to horizontal and vertical bends. It was determined that an extension of a new sewer main under the existing sidewalk area was the most cost-effective option to eliminate the conflicts. Approximately 1,500 LF of sewer main and six manholes were installed. Construction of new sidewalks and property restoration was also completed.
The Authority received a Commonwealth Financing Authority grant for an extension of an 8” water main along Dutch Road that eliminated an old asbestos cement main that was the primary water feed to the community. This main crosses Rt. 219. This crossing and valving were also installed and completed so as not to interfere with the Rt. 219 reconstruction project.
The Authority also had a sewer main that caused problems in the past. The steel casing ends were uncovered and new PVC main and casing spacers were installed.
For over 20 years I have had the privilege of working with Keller Engineers and their staff of surveyors, and civil and structural engineers on over $150 million worth of work. During these project relationships and partnering opportunities, my architectural teams have received nothing but premium professional services and courtesy towards my own staff, clients and prospective clients with stellar attention given to building and site details, client responsiveness and peer respect. I look forward to many more teaming opportunities and urge any other architectural firms, municipalities or clients who have not worked with Keller Engineers to do so. You will be pleasantly surprised! Richard L. Karcher, AIA, NCARB
