Mill Street Paving

PennDOT will mill and pave Mill Street, the borough's main downtown street, in the latter half of May. The contractor will work at night — from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. — and shut down just one lane at a time, so there will be less disruption to traffic. The project is scheduled to start on May 13 and finish by May 31 with some cleanup work after that.
