Resurfacing Project Begins This Week on Herr Street in the City of Harrisburg


10-day closure planned to start Friday, April 9

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that a resurfacing project on Herr Street (Route 3018) in the City of Harrisburg is set to begin later this week. 

This project consists of milling and resurfacing the roadway, sidewalk replacement, installing ADA curb ramps, sanitary and storm sewer utility line relocations, drainage improvements, updates to signing and pavement markings from Cameron Street to Seventh Street in the city. 

The contractor also will perform column pedestal concrete replacement work and structure fascia wall surface prepping and painting under and around the Norfolk Southern Railroad structure.

A 10-day closure of Herr Street will begin Friday, April 9, so drainage work can be completed, and sidewalk excavation can be performed. A detour will be in place using Cameron Street, Maclay Street and Seventh Street. The sidewalk on the south side of Herr Street will remain open. Herr Street is expected to remain closed until Monday, April 19. There will be lane restrictions under flagging for pavement saw cutting Thursday night, April 8, beginning at 7 PM.

All remaining work will be performed with lane closures under flagging. This project is expected to be completed by June 17, 2021.
