We at Washington Township want to give our Road Crew a high five for doing a thankless job; getting up before dawn to clear roads while we sleep and working long hours into the night to keep us safe on our roadways. Please be patient with them as they “get to your street,” as they are working as diligently and quickly as possible, often in horrible weather conditions. Next time you see a plow out clearing the roads, remember, a word of appreciation goes farther than any complaint.
Weather dependent, beginning February 5th, through early October 2024 SR 1015 (Lower S. Main St) and the intersection of True Blue Rd will be closed to traffic. The project consists of the replacement of the existing bridge over Matin's Creek, and other miscellaneous construction at that intersection. There will be a detour route.
The Blue Valley Rescue Squad (BVRS) has been saving lives in our community for over 50 years. In 1973, local fire chief joined together to form the BVRS to take care of their specialty rescue needs within the Slate Belt. Today our highly trained volunteers perform vehicle rescues, ground-wilderness search and rescues, water rescues, confined-space rescues, and high-angle rescues in Washington Township, and the boroughs of Bangor, East Bangor, and Roseto. We also support our local fire companies with fire rehab when needed. On top of that, the BVRS has a Quick Response Service Unit (QRS) that assists with medical emergencies in our coverage area as well. Since we are an extension of our local fire companies, many of our members are also firefighters.
