Burhans work will create traffic problems
Work to improve a storm drain that runs under North Burhans Boulevard and West Franklin Street will make traffic conditions in the area "horrendous" this spring, said Assistant City Engineer Rodney Tissue.
Traffic control will have to be handled carefully during the work, said City Engineer Bruce Johnston.
Tissue said that under a proposed contract, the company would have three months to complete the work, but it could be finished quicker. Work is expected to begin in March.
City staff recommended during Tuesday's work session that council members approve the low bidder, E.F. Goetz & Sons Construction Inc. of Chambersburg, Pa.
