Paving schedule for Second Street to continue with side streets; north section expected two-ways by early September
Harrisburg, PA – The city’s project to make Second Street a two-way roadway hopes to reach its first milestone in the following weeks.
The north portion of the Second Street project, from Maclay Street to Division street, is almost completed. Construction partner JVI Construction Group plans to pave side roads on Monday, August 29 and Tuesday, August 30, aiming to open the stretch of road to north- and southbound traffic in early September.
Parking will be slightly impacted the week of August 29 to September 2 as the completion of milling and paving resumes comes to an end.
Parking restrictions are as follows:
Monday 08/29 – Tuesday 08/30
From Peffer Street to Shamokin Street, parking will be limited on all four street corners, approximately 50 feet from Second Street. This includes Peffer, Maclay, Woodbine, Emerald, Seneca, Schuylkill, Radnor, Wiconisco, and Shamokin. No more than two parking spaces are expected to be impacted.
In addition, the south side of Maclay Street will be closed to parking from Second Street to Third Street.
The south side of Verbeke Street will be closed to parking from Front Street to Second Street.
The north side of Verbeke Street will be closed to parking from Second to Green Street
The south side of Reily Street will be closed to parking from Front Street to Penn Street.
The south side of Kelker Street will be closed to parking from Front Street to Second Street.
The north side of Kelker Street will be closed to parking from Second Street to Green Street.
Second Street is on time for a full two-way conversion by the middle of Fall 2022. Roundabouts are in the process of being installed at the intersections of Verbeke, Reily, and Kelker Streets.
Please follow all posted signs within the construction zones.
Expect Second Street to remain open and functioning as a one-way street during the 2022 construction season. There may be occasional lane closures to accommodate some on the construction tasks.
