WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- Construction work on Center Square should start at the beginning of March, Waynesboro Borough Engineer Kevin Grubbs said this week.
Reconfiguring the square has been in the works for 14 years.
Grubbs said contractor J.D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen, Pa., updates him regularly and reports being on schedule. The contractor has been submitting documents to the state.
"They're pretty much ready to go," Grubbs said.
The $3.2 million project will eliminate the existing double set of traffic lights, making the square a more traditional intersection for motorists. Pedestrians will have "bumped out" curbs to shorten their crossing on both the east and west sides of Main Street.
"It gets the pedestrians out there and in sight of the motorists," Grubbs said.
Red brick pavers will replace all sidewalks, and curbs will be improved. Pa. 16 will be paved, and eight of the road's traffic lights will be synchronized.
