Chester St. (Pershing St. to Lime St.)

Beginning the week of November 6 and continuing for a few weeks, contractors for the City of Lancaster (Wexcon Inc) will be performing water main and service lateral improvements prior to roadway resurfacing. Short-term detours will be required daily during the work due to the narrow cartway width. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes during the duration of this project, and residents and visitors are advised to pay attention to, and follow, posted parking restrictions. Residents on this block will receive notices on their doors and/or in their mailboxes detailing the schedule and impacts, and will be provided with contacts with the contractor and City of Lancaster. Questions on this project should be directed to the Deputy Director for Construction, Public Works, (717) 291-4777. 

 

North Charlotte St. Water Main Improvements (Orange to Harrisburg)

Beginning the week of October 30 and continuing into the spring (late-March), contractors for the City of Lancaster (Doli Construction) will be performing water main improvements in conjunction with the overall Charlotte Street Two-Way Conversion project. As a result, lane restrictions and parking restrictions should be expected throughout the life of this utility project. Short-term detours may be required at certain milestones and will be posted in advance. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes during the duration of this project, and residents and visitors are advised to pay attention to, and follow, posted parking restrictions. This work will occur in conjunction and coordination with UGI’s infrastructure upgrades. These utility upgrades are being performed as coordinated work with the overall construction project, such that all utilities will be in solid repair prior to the investment of a new roadway surface planned for October 2018. Residents impacted along this route will receive notices on their doors and/or in their mailboxes detailing the schedule and impacts, and will be provided with contacts with the contractor and City of Lancaster. Questions on this project should be directed to the Deputy Director for Construction, Public Works, (717) 291-4777.

Contractors for 101 North Queen Street have closed North Christian Street (Marion St to Orange Street) for work on the former Bulova Building façade. The cartway will be restricted to a 5’ pedestrian walkway. Parking is eliminated and all traffic exiting Duke Street garage onto Christian Street will be forced to leave via Marion Street to Duke Street. Additional site changes will occur and be communicated in coming months as that project progresses.

 

West Orange Street (Yorgo’s, Prince Street Garage Projects)

Contractors for Yorgo’s and LPA will continue on their associated projects into November. As a result, short-term daytime restrictions will occur between the hours of 9:00am to 3:00pm as needed to complete the work and avoid rush hour as much as feasible. As a result, travel may be delayed when passing through this area, and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes when available.  

 

East & West Walnut Street (Duke to Prince), UGI Gas Infrastructure Improvement

Contractors for UGI will continue on their main and service replacement project through November. As a result, short-term daytime restrictions will occur between the hours of 9:00am to 3:00pm as needed to complete the work and avoid rush hour. As a result, travel may be delayed when passing through this area, and motorists are advised to seek alternate routes when available.  Crossroads such as Queen, Market, Christian, and Duke may be restricted as needed to perform intersection work.

 

Broad Street (King St to Orange St), City of Lancaster Annual Water Main Replacements

City of Lancaster will continue annual water main replacements with its contractor, Horst Excavating, on Broad Street. With weather cooperation, the project will continue into November. Southbound traffic will be diverted at Orange (Orange-Franklin-King), and northbound traffic will be restricted to a single lane during work hours (7:00am to 5:00pm). Traffic patterns and parking will be restored for nights and weekends. The contractor intends to work a four day, 10-hour schedule (Monday-Thursday 7:00am to 5:00pm), with Fridays being reserved for rain dates. Motorists traveling from South Broad or East King Street are advised there will be significant travel delays at the intersection of Broad/King for all traffic attempting to use northbound Broad Street. Motorists and residents are advised to follow all posted signage related to traffic pattern changes and parking restrictions, as towing will be enforced.

 

Pine Street (Chestnut/Pine north side of intersection)

During the week of October 16, contractors will mill and reprofile a low area with ponding concerns (weather dependent), which will require travel and parking restrictions for approximately 1-2 days. Residents and motorists are advised to follow all posted parking and construction signage to avoid ticketing, towing, or delay. The date is undetermined at this time, and residents are advised to watch for the posting of work zone signs. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

 

East King Street, Marriott Expansion and Fulton Bank

The two travel lanes have been shifted left (north) to accommodate two lanes of travel while providing a safe working zone buffer for the demolition and site preparation activity. Parking has been eliminated between Queen and Christian Streets to facilitate this shift. This shift will remain in place until the new tower is completed in late-2018. The contractors will be coordinating site activities between the Marriott and Fulton Bank projects to eliminate or reduce the need for lane restrictions downtown. Sidewalk closure on the south side of the 000 block of E. King Street will occur during heavy construction at the site and pedestrians will be directed to use the north sidewalk.
