South Hazel Street – Extending from High Street to Stiegel Street, and North Linden Street – Extending from High Street to Gramby Street. Both are scheduled for the summer of 2019 and will utilize the full-depth reclamation process which will essentially reconstruct the entire street. A portion of S Hazel Street – from High to Ferdinand – has a concrete base and will therefore just be milled and overlayed. Additional project information will be provided to residents as the project approaches.
UGI will also be replacing a gas main in South Hazel Street between High and Ferdinand ahead of this project, tentatively scheduled for March or April. Residents along S Hazel will be receiving additional information directly from UGI.

2017 and Earlier Completed projects:
The purpose of the 2017 street projects was primarily that of preventive maintenance in order to extend the life of the affected streets and to allow the Borough to utilize our limited funds in a more efficient manner. Similar to what many people do with residential driveways and parking lots, the seal coat helps to prevent water from seeping into and below the surface. This water, along with the freeze/thaw cycles, are the primary cause of pot holes and more significant street damage, which results in the need for more extensive (and expensive) repairs.
Wolf Street Parking Lot – New lighting has been installed, enhancing night-time visibility and safety, and the surface has been re-sealed. The Cardboard Dumpsters have been permanently relocated to the parking lot at Logan Park off of Ferdinand Street.
Police/EMS Building Project: Construction is complete. The police are now operating out of the new building. Emergency Services Campus
Chiques Creek Sediment Removal (72 @ Fruitville Pike) – Work has been completed for the removal of sediment from the Chiques Creek. This will greatly enhance capacity and flow through this area. Chiques Creek sediment removal plans
