South Oak Street Bridge Repairs
Work is anticipated to be completed by the middle of October for the repairs to the South Oak Street Bridge (the bridge near GG Feeds, NOT the bridge that is currently closed). This work may result in temporary lane closures, but the bridge is anticipated to be open at all times.
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. The work is currently underway.
South Hazel Street and North Linden Street
Work on these projects is now substantially complete. Final touch-up items should be completed by the mid-September.
South Hazel Street – Extending from High Street to Stiegel Street. This project utilized the full-depth reclamation process between Ferdinand and Stiegel which essentially reconstructed the entire street. Between High and Ferdinand, the street has a concrete base and was therefore milled and overlayed in this section.
UGI has completed the replacement of a gas main in South Hazel Street between High and Ferdinand ahead of this project.
North Linden Street – Extending from High Street to Gramby Street. This project utilized the full-depth reclamation process which essentially reconstructed the entire street.
PennDOT-UGI West High/S Penn Gas Main Project
PennDOT has completed their project on Market Square and West High Street.
Permanent restoration on Borough streets that were affected by the gas line work is complete. This included 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
