Walnut Street Resurfacing Coming Soon!
The City of Lebanon has been working with PENNDOT and the Federal Highway Administration to resurface SR422 and SR72 in the City of Lebanon. The resurfacing will take place in four phases. In general:

  • Phase 1: Walnut Street from 12th Street to 5th Ave
  • Phase 2: 10th Street from the city line north of Coleman Memorial Park on Maple Street to Poplar Street
  • Phase 3: 9th Street from Colebrook Road to Maple Street 
  • Phase 4: Cumberland Street from S 5th Ave to 16th Street
 
Below is the timeline for Phase 1 - Walnut Street. This is scheduled to begin this month. Please note that all work is weather dependent and schedules may change or shift accordingly.
Any questions on this project should be directed to the Department of Public Works, 717-228-4490. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we restore the street’s structural integrity. Pretty soon it will be smooth riding!
