2019 Community Development Block Grant Project
Manheim Borough has been awarded a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant which will be used to provide pedestrian upgrades, including ADA accessibility, at the Wolf Street parking lot and East High Street, and at various intersections along the designated walk-to-school route for the new Baron Elementary School!
Bids are anticipated to be awarded in August, with work beginning in September.
South Hazel Street and North Linden Street
Contracts have been awarded for these projects. Preliminary work (ADA ramps and storm sewer at Swan Park) has begun and will continue through mid to late July, with paving operations beginning upon completion of this work. Door hangers have been placed along both streets.
South Hazel Street – Extending from High Street to Stiegel Street. This project will utilize the full-depth reclamation process between Ferdinand and Stiegel which will essentially reconstruct the entire street. Between High and Ferdinand, the street has a concrete base and will therefore be milled and overlayed in this section.
UGI will also be replacing a gas main in South Hazel Street between High and Ferdinand ahead of this project. This work has been underway and is anticipated to be completed by early July. Residents along S Hazel will be receiving additional information directly from UGI.
North Linden Street – Extending from High Street to Gramby Street. This project will utilize the full-depth reclamation process which will essentially reconstruct the entire street.
UGI West High/S Penn Gas Main Project
IMPORTANT NOTICE: PennDOT has completed the major paving work on Market Square and West High Street. Line and crosswalk striping will take place upon completion of paving, and should be complete by mid-July. The schedule is subject to weather conditions, and we will provide any updates as they are provided to us by PennDOT.
Borough streets that were affected by the gas line work are currently scheduled to have permanent restoration completed in August. This will include milling and overlay on the side of the streets directly impacted by the gas main work.
2018 Completed Projects
PennDOT’s Main St/PA 72 Paving Project
Traffic Signal Battery Backup Project
The Borough was awarded a Green Light-Go grant from PennDOT for the installation of battery backup power supply for all traffic signals in the Borough.
South Charlotte Street repaving project
North Main Street (PA 72) Stormwater Improvements
The Borough was awarded a $200,000 Community Development Block Grant to install storm sewers from Danner Alley to Gramby Street. This project will help reduce the amount of stormwater on Main Street and the resulting splash onto adjacent sidewalks and buildings.
Click on videos below to see the before and after conditions that have resulted from this project! The “after” video is from the exact same location – the adjacent building is the old Bickles building which is being redeveloped (the portion with the railing has since been demolished), and the white house across the street with the peeling paint from last year has since been painted black. The residents and business owners along this stretch no longer have the splash they previously had which had been dirtying and damaging their buildings, and it is also in an infill redevelopment area that is already generating pedestrian traffic – which was impossible on a rainy day prior to this project – and the property is only developed at a small fraction of the total.
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
