Fairground Avenue Closure Frequently Asked Questions
Once the road is closed, it will remain closed 24-hours per day, 7 days per week for the duration of the closure.
This depends on how quickly construction can be completed. At this point, we expect about 1-month from the start of the closure.
Residents should continue to place Borough trash bags and recycling bins at the front of their property for the scheduled pickup. Rogele will collect the bags and recycling bins the morning of the pickup for collection by Waste Connections at the point outside the closure. Please mark your property address on your recycling container so Rogele can return the empty container to the front of your property once the recycling is collected.
Contact Mitch Kauffman, Rogele Project Manager, for coordination with the service provider. Mitch can be reached at 717-756-3854. Please note that access to the front of the houses will be limited, and residents should use the rear of their property as much as possible.
Yes, the Borough has informed our emergency responders about the closure and Rogele will coordinate with the responders for access in the event of an emergency.
Access to the property fronts will be very limited due to the shift of Fairground Avenue to the east and the need for full reconstruction of the sidewalks and roads. Rogele will work with the residents as best we can, but emphasis should be placed on accessing the properties from the rear.
Mail service will continue to the properties during the closure.
See Answer 6. Rear access to the properties should be used if possible.
Residents will not be able to park along Fairground Avenue and should seek other locations such as the rear of their property from Vozar Avenue, along A Street, or along B Street.
