WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The Waynesboro Borough Council Wednesday night approved a list of proposed street projects for 2006, including the reconstruction of sections of 10 streets and the resurfacing of four others, totaling more than $1.3 million.

The funding will come from a variety of sources, including about $800,000 in work that would be paid for with a 4 percent loan from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Bank, said Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger. Federal Community Development Block Grant funds would be used to do another $347,000 in street work and the $186,000 in funding from the state would be used for the reconstruction of Cumberland Valley Avenue.

Scheduled for reconstruction next year with funds from the infrastructure bank are Clayton Avenue between West Fifth Street and Old Mill Road; South Broad Street between East Main and East Third streets; South Church Street from Main Street to Third Street; Walnut Street from an alley south of East Third Street to West Sixth Street; West Ninth Street between Park Street and Anthony Avenue; and Park Street between West Eighth and West Ninth streets.

Using community development grant money, the borough plans to reconstruct Mount Airy Avenue from North Broad Street to Dickinson Avenue; North Broad Street from East Main Street to Mount Airy Avenue; and North Potomac Street between West Main and West North streets.

The 2006 list calls for repaving West Ninth Street from South Potomac to Park streets; Clayton Avenue from Old Mill Road to East Ninth Street; North Franklin Street between West North Street and King Street; and West Second Street between Hamilton and Fairview avenues.

Borough Council member Dick George said earlier this year that the Cumberland Valley Avenue project is a priority. The street leads to a truck entrance for Frick Co., one of the borough's largest employers. Frick is investing several million dollars in plant upgrades, according to the Franklin County Development Corp.

The borough also approved replacing all 213 of its parking meters next year. Hamberger said that project will cost $31,000.
