Street closures, parking restrictions, noise, and temporary water service interruptions are expected during construction.

The project is scheduled to wrap up by mid-July.

Project Locations:

-Magnolia Street between South 12th Street and South 13th Street, Harrisburg

-Ridgeway Road between Overbrook Road and Colonial Road, Susquehanna Township

-Clinton Road between Cloverfield Road and Centerfield Road, Susquehanna Township

-Herr Street and Laurel Street near Walnut Street, Susquehanna Township & Penbrook
