Message from Township Council for Green Phase Opening
Bristol Township Residents and Businesses:
Following Governor Wolf’s move into the Yellow Phase, Bristol Township’s Administration and Police Records remain open to the public. The lobby areas are small, and we will require masks to be worn in the buildings, as well as continuing to follow CDC Guidelines for social distancing. We had installed a Dropbox for Tax and Sewer payments prior to the shut down for convenience day, night and weekend use. We encourage you to continue to use this for payments (check and money orders only, no cash). We on Township Council, in addition with Bristol Township Staff are very much looking forward to continuing to assist our residents and businesses in any way we can.
The playgrounds at our parks are open again! (with signage on CDC Guidelines). Additionally, we are as excited as everyone to open up the walking trail at the Municipal Complex. The project had minor completion items and construction was halted in the earlier months, but we have been in contact with our project management team and are hopeful this will open within a few weeks.
It’s been a long three months! Our Community has been patient, and we have worked together to get to where we are now, we thank you for this. Let’s continue follow the guidance and keep moving in positive directions.
Please remember we have installed a dropbox for tax and sewer payments in front of the Administration Building for checks and certified payments only. Township and County Taxes have been extended to July 30, 2020. To receive the discount, you still must pay by April 30th. For local EIT purposes, Keystone is accordingly extending the Individual filing deadlines to match the State and Federal date of July 15, 2020.

Route 13 and Turnpike
PennDOT and Turnpike Engineers met with the Township. They are aware of the congestion due to the construction and have already been working on corrective actions. The issues are mainly from signal timing and single through lanes. The corrective actions they are working for implementation are adjusting the timing of the signal, adding a temporary video detection system, installing GPS clocks for Green Lane and Turnpike signal coordination, redesigning for additional though lane for SB Route 13 and adding green arrow for right turn from SB Route 13. The removal of the bridge deck has begun, then removal of temporary signal C posts, re-do lanes adding the through SB lane and adjust timing for turn lanes.
