Jackson Township is pleased to announce that, on December 19, 2023, the Commonwealth Financing Authority awarded $500,000 of its H2O funding towards the Franklin Road Waterline Project, thus brining the long-needed improvements within reach of final design, permitting, and construction. 
The project involves the installation of approximately one- and one-half miles of waterline to serve West Kaufman Road, the Timberview Plan, and Franklin Road, from the Cranberry Township line to approximately one mile north. 
The system will provide access to public water to upwards of forty residences in a section of the Township with immediate needs and no short-term prospects of privately funded waterline extensions. The project has also received $100,000 in committed contributions from Weaver Homes, developers of Woodland Reserve on Pattison Street Extension.
The Township, in cooperation with the Jackson Municipal Authority, will finalize plans for bidding and construction and will reach out directly to the residents of the corridor as the timeline is finalized.
The Township wishes to thank Senator Elder Vogel and Representative Stephenie Scialabba for their active support, advocacy, and understanding of the project, which was instrumental in the successful award of funding for this vital improvement.
