CV Avenue set for $380,000 upgrade

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - CV Avenue, scarred by potholes, is up for a $380,000 rehabilitation project this year.

One bid was received for the road in the Borough of Waynesboro, according to Kevin Grubbs, director of borough engineering.

The borough has a $200,000 grant for the project, which requires the municipality to pay for all costs exceeding that amount. The Waynesboro Borough Council has approved $22,500 worth of inspection services for the road.

The road, which serves Johnson Controls, formerly Frick Co., will be torn up and rebuilt by the end of the year, Grubbs said.

He said the borough will be spending community development block grant funding on four other road projects - St. Andrew Drive; North Broad Street from Mt. Airy Avenue to Harbaugh Avenue; North Street from Broad Street to Church Street; and Garfield Street from Eden Avenue to Brown Street.


Repaving South Welty Road is also on tap.
