Current & Upcoming Construction Projects

Hanover & South Street Paving
Beginning Wednesday, August 5, crews from Acer Paving will begin the milling & overlay of South Hanover Street, East South Street, and East Chapel Avenue. They will have traffic control measures in place. "No Parking" signs will go up on Monday, August 3. 

The areas being paved include:

  • Intersection of South and Hanover Streets
  • East South Street from Hanover to South East Street (westbound side)
  • South Hanover Street from South Street to Pomfret Street (northbound parking lane)
  • East Chapel Avenue from Hanover Street to South East Street
Work should wrap up by August 12.



Paving Operations on Factory and A Streets
Crews will be paving Factory Street from A to B Street. and on A Street from Factory to College Street beginning Wednesday, July 29. Paving should wrap up Friday, July 31. There will be no parking in that area during the work.

Decorative Crosswalks
Installation of the decorative crosswalks at the square will begin on Monday, July 27. Work is planned from 7:00 PM until 5:00 AM to minimize the disruption of traffic. The contractor will have traffic control measures in place, including flaggers, to direct traffic around the area. The contractor will also be closing one lane at a time during the work. Weather permitting, the project should wrap up on Thursday, July 30.

Highly visible crosswalks are an essential tool for helping pedestrians move safely, conveniently, and predictably across roadways. Marked crosswalks also alert drivers to expect crossing pedestrians. The Borough installed the existing decorative crosswalks at High and Hanover in 2011 as part of the Road Diet project. These markings have deteriorated to the point where most are not visible. Borough staff selected a through-color, polymer-modified resin system for increased longevity. 

Garland Drive Restoration
UPDATE: Work should wrap up by July 29. Thank you to everyone for your patience! 
UGI's paving contractor is tentatively scheduled to begin final street restoration paving on Garland Drive beginning Tuesday, July 14.

Crews will mill and pave Garland Drive from North Hanover Street to Walnut Bottom Road. This section of the road was previously excavated as part of UGI's gas main enhancement project. This process should take 3 to 4 weeks from start to finish. We ask that you not park along Garland Drive during this process. The road will remain open during paving with traffic control in place. There may be times when we have to detour around when we get to intersections.

Pumping Station #1 Lining Project
Crews will begin installing the pipe liner at pump station #1 on Wednesday, July 8.  They will begin at Manhole # 140, located near the intersection of Dunbar Road and Forbes Road, and work their way downstream to Pumping Station #1 near Waggoner's Gap Road. The project should take approximately two weeks.

TIGER Project
The TIGER Project, part of the Borough’s Carlisle Connectivity Project, includes improvements to Fairground Avenue north of the railroad tracks and B Street from Fairground Avenue west to North College Street. Rogele, Inc., the Borough’s contractor for the project, began pre-construction inspections shortly before the COVID-19 shutdown. They plan to begin fieldwork, weather permitting, on Monday, June 15. The first activity planned is the installation of new water mains starting at the intersection of West Street and B Street. Rogele plans to work Monday through Friday from 7:00 am until 3:30 pm. They will close each section of the street they work on during this time and reopen the street by evening. “No Parking” signs will be posted before the start of construction. More information can be found here.

Pedestrian Curb Ramps
Replacement of Pedestrian Curb Ramps to conform with current mobility and accessibility standards is planned to start in late June on streets targeted for resurfacing during 2020.  The majority of these ramps will be replaced through a contract awarded recently by Carlisle Borough Council following a competitive bidding process.  Additional ramps will be replaced by Borough staff.

High & Orange Street Intersection
On Thursday, July 23, weather permitting, crews will install the mast arms and signal heads at the intersection of High and Orange. This work will have a significant impact on traffic at this intersection throughout the day.
Traffic Signal improvements at the High and Orange Street Intersection are scheduled to restart following Covid-19 related delays and is expected to be completed in early summer.  The project replaces the traffic signals at this intersection to address vehicle detection obstruction issues caused by the railroad overpass. A left-turn lane has been added to the northbound approach in order to improve traffic flow.
