UGI will also be replacing gas mains prior to the paving project. Click the following link for more details 042518 – PennDOT to Repair Pave Route 72 through Manheim and Rapho Twp.
The latest information we have received from PennDOT indicate that base repair work will commence the first full week of August, and the final overlay paving will begin the last week of August. This schedule is approximate and subject to change due to weather and other factors. We will update this information as it is made available to us by PennDOT.
South Hazel Street – This project, extending from High Street to Stiegel Street, will utilize the full-depth reclamation process which will essentially reconstruct the entire street.
NOTE: Due to a number of factors, including UGI’s plans for replacing a gas main in the Spring of 2019, the S Hazel Street project is being postponed until the Summer of 2019.

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
