Work on downtown streets will begin June 20 | State and Area News

YORK — Delayed work on city center streets will now begin on June 20, according to the public works department.

During the week of June 20, Lincoln and Grant avenues will be covered with a new layer of asphalt. Crews will rework some of the fixes on June 20, then the asphalt equipment will roll the new layer of asphalt over the next three days.

City officials say they expect one lane of traffic to be open during roadwork, except for the morning of June 21, when the Lincoln Avenue underpass will be closed.

Assuming there are no unforeseen delays, the project will be complete by the end of the day on June 23.

The road works will be divided into six sections lasting six hours each. There will be no parking on affected streets during each phase. Each morning phase will run from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The afternoon phases will take place from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. No parking sign will be put up the day before, as a reminder. Vehicles in no-parking zones will be towed at the owner’s expense, city officials said.

As an example, the map’s Day 1 afternoon area (which can be found on the city’s website, Facebook page, and Notifier app) shows that from noon to 6 p.m. hours, no parking will be enforced on both sides of Lincoln and Grand Avenues from Sixth Street to Ninth Street.

Cross streets will also be closed to prevent vehicles from entering the construction zone prior to the placement of asphalt.
