PHOENIXVILLE - The installation of 2,000 linear feet of asphalt roadways at French Creek Townhomes, a 152-home subdivision on the former steel site at Vanderslice Street, began on Friday.
Builder Sam D'Agostino, of S & S Developers Co., said that half of the development's roadways would be completed by Monday, if weather permits. The rest of the roads will be built at a later date.
"It's good because it allows us to continue with those buildings on the top end of the development.
Prudential Fox & Roach Marketing Specialist, Joseph Scott McArdle, said that some new homeowners will be able to move in during November, while 20 to 30 property owners might be able to make settlement and occupy their property by Dec. 31.
D'Agostino said that rainy weather had set the project back by six weeks, but that the newly completed roadways would now allow electric and gas hook-ups from the curb.
McArdle said that rains delayed underground sewer, water, gas and electricity infrastructure improvements and that many area builders are as much as two to three months behind schedule because of the weather.
McArdle was pleased to announce that 90 of 152 units were already under agreement for sale, and that the already, or soon to be newly installed 2,000 linear feet of roadway, would access those homes.
Driveways will be completed just prior to new homeowner occupancy.
Townhomes start in price at $199,900.
