Waynesboro Council studies broad plan for street improvements

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - 2008 promises to be a big year for street improvements in the Borough of Waynesboro.

The redesign of Center Square, significant repairs to CV Avenue and repaving East Second Street near Waynesboro Area Senior High School all made Councilman Allen Porter's list of projects Wednesday.

Porter oversees the council's street committee, which meets monthly and includes members of the public.

Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger has the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation design drawings for Center Square on his desk, Porter said.

"I'd ask any council member to look at them and look at them as soon as possible," Hamberger said.

The plans also will be taken to a street committee meeting before they are returned to PennDOT, he said.

The project, which is scheduled for the spring of next year, also includes synchronization of Main Street traffic lights.

CV Avenue's repairs will be bid in December, Porter said.


Porter and Borough Engineer Kevin Grubbs talked about delays in obtaining free crosswalk signs - until Councilman Richard "Dick" George announced that money had been donated to buy six.

The freestanding, neon signs will be placed in the center of crosswalks to further identify them.

"They can be ordered at any time. The funding is there," George said.

"I'll order them tomorrow," Grubbs said.

After the meeting, George declined to identify from where the contributions originated.
