Construction on Market Street in York City reduces sections to one lane


The repaving of Market Street in York City is "moving along pretty well," according to Director of Public Works Jim Gross.

Right now, workers are finishing the final paving between Carlisle Avenue and the bridge over the Codorus, and traffic is down to one lane, Gross said.

Over the course of this week and next, motorists can expect Market Street to be reduced to one lane in various areas between Carlisle Avenue and Harrison Street.

Starting Sunday night, Market Street will be closed between Pershing Avenue and Duke Street from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. for night work.

Workers have milled the old pavement, put down a leveling course and replaced handicapped ramps, Gross said. He expects the $2.8 million project, funded by PennDOT and performed by Kinsley Construction, to be finished by the end of October or mid-November.
