Streetscape Project Commences; Temporary Traffic Detours Necessary

Because of the assistance of a grant from the Commonwealth Financing Agency, Brentwood Borough will be engaging in a project that is concurrently designed to improve pedestrian accessibility and the overall aesthetic appeal of our central business district. Beginning on October 8th, the municipality's contractor will commence the completion of infrastructure upgrades such as the installation of decorative stamped crosswalks, the replacement of aging sidewalks, and the placement of traffic calming curb extensions. Due to the nature of this project, traffic will be temporarily prohibited on sections of Brownsville Road. The Borough is working closely with local business owners, school officials, first responders, and transit providers to ensure that that disruptions are kept to a minimum. For more information about the project timelines and the detour routes, please view the informational sheet here.

Brentwood Again Successfully Applies for Funding to Improve Park

As our contractor prepares to place the finishing touches on the renovation of our public pool, Brentwood Borough has received news that will permit the sounds of construction to return to our park next spring. The municipality has been awarded a $167,200 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources. This funding will facilitate the installation of the only proposed new structure that was included on the park master site plan but that has not yet been erected. The building, which will be located at field level in the stadium, will contain much needed storage space for athletic equipment, a storm shelter that can be utilized by athletes during inclement weather, and new restrooms that will conveniently serve both participants in organized sporting events and those residents who use the walking track.
