Harrisburg, PA – Mayor Eric Papenfuse will announce the start of a project to repave several sections of North Third Street in Harrisburg at a ground-breaking ceremony at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, 2017, at the corner of Third and Sayford Streets.
Repaving will involve the following areas in the estimated $5.5 million project that is expected to be completed in October 2018:
- From Chestnut Street north to State Street
- From Forster Street (SR 3016) north to Muench Street
- From Maclay Street north to Seneca Street
Doug Lamb Construction Inc. has been contracted to do the repaving. The City of Harrisburg is sharing costs for the work with Capital Region Water (CRW). The City will pay an estimated $3.5 million, with CRW paying the remaining $2 million.
The project also will include new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps, traffic signal improvements and new street trees and tree pits.
Residents may experience some inconvenience during the work, as it will be necessary to prohibit or to alter parking on the street during construction. “No Parking” signs will be posted approximately 24 hours in advance of the start of work.
