COMMUTER ALERT: The Borough of Chambersburg


CHAMBERSBURG—Road construction will begin this week in Chambersburg.

New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc. will work on the following streets:

1. Brookview Avenue (West King Street to High Street), West King Street (Grandview Avenue to Brookview Avenue)

2. Hamilton Avenue (North Franklin Street to Municipal Boundary)

3. Harrison Drive (Grandview Avenue to Municipal Boundary)

4. Heintzelman Avenue (Grandview Avenue to Municipal Boundary)

The work on Brookview Avenue, Hamilton Avenue and Harrison Avenue will involve Full Depth Reclamation, which recycles the existing asphalt to establish a base that is overlaid with an asphalt wearing course. Work on Heintzelman Avenue will involve mill and overlay, which removes a layer of existing asphalt that is overlaid with an asphalt wearing course.

Construction activity will take place between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Vehicle access on these streets will be restricted, with a New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc. flagging crew to properly direct vehicles through the construction site.

Parking will be prohibited at various times to allow the work to be done; however, Full Depth Reclamation creates a large amount of dust so vehicle owners are strongly encouraged to not park on the street at all while construction activity takes place.

Also, streets will remain open for local traffic only; however, they may be closed for short periods of time during certain phases of construction.
