Borough Crews Plan Overnight Snow Removal in Downtown Carlisle
To assist our downtown businesses in operating safely and effectively, the Borough of Carlisle will perform overnight snow removal operations beginning Thursday, February 4 at 10:00 p.m. This removal effort will clear the snow from on-street parking spots in the downtown area, providing visitors and patrons with accessible parking and continued curbside pickup options for downtown businesses in order to operate safely and effectively throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We made a commitment early in the pandemic to be responsive to the needs of our businesses and residents during these trying times,” said Deputy Mayor Sean Shultz. “This is one part of that effort,” Shultz added, “and all our appreciation goes out to our Borough crews who are going to work through the night to make it happen.”
Snow removal operations will take place throughout Thursday night into early Friday morning concluding on, or before, 6:00 a.m. In order to complete this operation, vehicles will need to be removed from North Hanover Street to the intersection of North Street; South Hanover Street to the intersection of South Street; West High Street to the intersection of West Street and East High Street to the intersection of Bedford Street. Additionally, the first block of West Pomfret Street from South Hanover Street to Pitt Street will be addressed. “No Parking” signs will be posted in the designated areas on Wednesday. Those needing to move their cars may utilize any of the designated Borough parking lots free of charge. Free parking is also available at the Pomfret Street Parking Garage until 9:00 a.m. on Friday morning.
To avoid potential damage to sidewalks, the crews will go no further than 18 inches from the curb to the parking meter with the snow removal equipment.
