Asian Tiger Mosquitoes Found in Washington Borough

Community Action for Mosquito Control

Belvidere Avenue has been reopened between New Street and Carlton Avenue.  Due to a failure of the pavement as a result of Saturday's heavy rainfall, approximately 200' of compromised bituminous pavement was removed, exposing the underlying concrete pavement.  The Department of Public Works has prepared this surface to serve as a passable roadway until a permanent solution to the water runoff can be implemented and the roadway repaved.  Repaving of Belvidere Avenue between Carlton Avenue and New Street will be announced once a date is finalized.  Please use care and heed warning signs while driving on this section of Belvidere Avenue as the pavement is uneven.
