WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- With newly painted yellow center lines and a reconstructed surface, East Second Street in Waynesboro is open for traffic.
The road provides two-way traffic access to Waynesboro Area Senior High School.
The resurfacing extends from Myrtle Avenue to the Waynesboro Area Middle School driveway entrance.
The project was started in July and slated for completion before the start of the school year.
The 1,300-foot street resurfacing project cost about $270,000, according to Kevin Grubbs, the borough's head of engineering services.
Grubbs said the street was totally reconstructed.
Old material had been removed and 6 inches of base material put down to strengthen the street, followed by 2 inches of wearing course for smoothness and skid resistance, Grubbs said.
"We wanted to make sure it was strong enough to handle bus traffic," Grubbs said,
Grubbs said the average daily traffic flow on the street is about 3,000 vehicles.
