Work Detail After a summer of having 18 city blocks dug up for infrastructure repairs and replacements, local residents can look forward to another six weeks of work to repave those roads.

Repaving will begin Sept. 19 on Seventh Street. When that street is completed, crews will moved to Eighth Street, then to Cumberland Avenue, Highland Avenue and finally to King Street.

Residents and commuters using those streets endured a summer with the streets torn up and frequently closed, as borough work crews upgraded sewer mains, water mains, storm sewer infrastructure and gas lines in preparation for resurfacing.

The borough was using the opportunity of this fall's resurfacing projects to address maintenance issues in advance, in hopes of not having to dig into the newly resurfaced roads to make infrastructure repairs in the near future. Borough Manager Jeffrey Stonehill estimates that the technique used will produce roads that will stand up to normal wear and tear for about 15 years.

The repaving work will involve a process called "Cold In-Place Recycling" which recycles the existing asphalt to establish a base that is overlaid with an asphalt wearing course, according to Assistant Borough Manager Phil Wolgemuth.

New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co. Inc. will have until Oct. 15 to complete the construction work on the following streets:

Cumberland Avenue from Cleveland to Stouffer Avenues,
Eighth Street from Lincoln Way East to Catherine Street,
Highland Avenue from South Fourth Street. to Cumberland Avenue,
King Street from North Seventh Street to Grandview Avenue, and
Seventh Street from Washington Street to McKinley Street
Vehicle access on these streets will be restricted, with a New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co. flagging crew directing vehicles through the construction sites.

Parking will be prohibited at various times to allow the work to be done.

There will be times when sections of the streets involved may be closed to vehicle access.

Borough officials ask the motoring public to obey "street closed" signs. The Chambersburg Police Department will be contacted for any vehicle that disobeys those signs and enters a construction zone, Wolgemuth said.

"The Borough of Chambersburg apologizes in advance for this inconvenience and thanks vehicle operators for your patience while street construction work takes place," Wolgemuth said in a news release outlining the scope of the repaving work.

The borough is in the process of hand-delivering notices to affected properties, outlining the areas to be affected and the rules for local residents as the project moves forward.

It is typical for paving work of this type to be done in the fall, according to Stonehill.

It is also typical for the borough to start a year in advance getting the streets ready for the resurfacing, mostly because of the time it takes to do the work replacing aging or deteriorating water and sewer mains, gas lines and storm sewers.

In fact, routine paving preparation has already begun on several streets due for paving next year, including recent gas line work on Park Avenue, which is a 2017 resurfacing project.
