101 North Queen Street (formerly Bulova Building, Queen/Orange)
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.
Lime Street Lane Restriction (James to Frederick Streets, LGH Expansion)
Contractors for LGH are installing storm and sanitary piping and manholes in Lime Street at Lancaster General Hospital, and will have Lime Street reduced to a single lane through late-September. Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes when available, or expect delays during their travels.
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 (Harrisburg Ave to New Street)
The City’s contractor is expecting to pave the final wearing course in late-September, after repair of the intersection at Pine/New. Residents and motorists are advised to follow all posted parking and construction signage to avoid ticketing, towing, or delay. Line striping will follow wearing course paving.
Pine Street (Chestnut/Pine north side of intersection)
Between late-September and mid-October, 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.
North Marshall Street & Burrowes Ave, Hamilton St
City of Lancaster is beginning to wrap up the large Green Infrastructure, pedestrian and vehicular improvements contract with its contractor, Horst Excavating. The project started in May 2017 and is expected to be completed late-September or early-October. Parking and daily road restrictions will occur to facilitate the work. Remaining schedule (weather-dependent) is expected as follows:
- Rain garden and other landscaping: late-September (trees will be planted in October)
- Marshall and Hamilton milling and paving: 9/20, 9/21, 9/22 (with line striping to follow)
- Burrowes milling and paving: 9/25, 9/26, 9/27 (with line striping to follow)
Because all of the work is weather-dependent and schedules may shift in either direction, residents are asked to continue to obey signage and use posted No Parking signage as a general guide when their street is expected to be vacated for paving or other heavy construction. Parking signs are posted 48 hours prior to a planned restriction. Any specific questions or needs should be directed to a field superintendent or the Engineering Office at (717) 291-4777.
