Over the next two weeks, PPL and the City of Lancaster will be performing several repair projects throughout the downtown area. Please be aware of the following anticipated restrictions, and take alternative routes if possible. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
Thursday, November 9, through Friday, November 10, PPL will be working on North Queen Street (Lemon to Walnut) to replace a damaged conductor between two manholes. North Queen Street will be reduced to one lane.
Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12, PPL will be working in the intersection of North Queen/Chestnut (Queen and Chestnut will both be reduced to one lane for at least Saturday) and also at Chestnut/Christian (sidewalk/parking) to mitigate a previous underground failure.
Monday, November 13, forces for the City of Lancaster’s Water Bureau will be milling and paving South Prince Street (King to Vine) and Prince Street will be reduced to a single lane during this work (workday hours).
Tuesday, Novemer 14 through Thursday, November 16, PPL will be jumping around downtown to various manholes to perform some switchovers related to the two earlier projects. These will be short-term lane restrictions at several downtown locations while crews enter manholes for short durations.
Friday, November 17, PPL will mobilize a crane truck to replace the failed network protector (huge circuit breaker) in the Orange Street sidewalk vault at Bulova (near Orange/Christian). As a result, Orange Street will be down to one lane. PPL will return to this work zone Monday, November 20 and Tuesday, November 21 and will have the sidewalk closed, but does not anticipate any lane restrictions to complete this project.
