WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Construction contracts for reconfiguring Center Square in Waynesboro have yet to be awarded.
The two bids opened Aug. 28 came in at $2.8 million and $3.2 million, about a million dollars more than estimated. But Pennsylvania Department of Transportation officials say the delay in awarding bids is not atypical, as they must be reviewed to ensure all components of the project are addressed.
The corners of sidewalks at Center Square will be "bumped out" so they extend farther into the intersection. The square will be tightened so it resembles a traditional intersection, rather than today's larger version with double sets of signals.
In addition to changes at Center Square, the work in 2009 will include the synchronization of traffic lights:
o West Main and Grant streets
o West Main and Potomac streets
o Main and Church streets
o East Main and Broad streets
o East Main Street and Clayton Avenue
