The project features a 3-point roundabout at B Street & Fairground Avenue; a 4-point roundabout at B Street & North College Street; a paved, mixed-use trail adjacent to Fairground Avenue; sidewalk, drainage, and sign upgrades; and various streetscape enhancements including improved sidewalks, pavers, decorative lighting, landscaping, stormwater management features, benches, and bike racks.

Construction Updates

UPDATE 10/20/2020
The Borough's contractor is still waiting for CenturyLink to move utility poles out of the way of construction before they can complete their work on B Street between North West Street and North Pitt Street. In the interim, the Borough's contractor will be applying a layer of temporary paving on the road and sidewalk areas for the winter until CenturyLink completes their work. Once CenturyLink is able to move its utility poles, the Borough's contractor will work to complete the final curb, sidewalk, and road paving. 

UPDATE 09/03/2020
Letters were recently sent to residents along Fairground Avenue informing them that water main replacement will be starting this month. The work requires the temporary closure of portions of Fairground Avenue while construction crews are present. The contractor will be posting No Parking signs along the affected blocks before work begins.

UPDATE 07/06/2020

Crews are finishing up the water main replacement from the intersection of B and West Streets east to Fairground Avenue.

Once that wraps up, they will begin stormwater, curbing, and street work on B Street between Factory and North West Streets. You may have seen signage in the area indicating that stretch will be closed beginning today, July 6. The actual closure will occur later this week, once crews receive delivery of piping.

UPDATE 06/24/2020
Rogele, Inc. is tentatively planning on beginning stormwater, curbing, and street work on B Street between Factory and North West on or around Monday, July 6. Their traffic control subcontractor will have signs posted in the next week for the planned closure.


**The TIGER Project is set to resume construction activities the week of June 15.**
In advance of the TIGER Project, the Borough's Water Resources Field Operations crew will be digging up and replacing sections of sanitary sewer main on B Street between Pitt and West Streets. Crews will need to temporarily close sections of B Street as they work. The work is expected to be completed by Friday, June 12.

Beginning Monday, June 15, Rogele, Inc., the Borough's contractor for the TIGER Projet, will start water main replacement work at the intersection of West and B Streets. They will work Monday through Friday from approximately 7:00 AM until 3:30 PM. "No Parking" signs will go up before the work begins.
