The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) and the City of Franklin announced the $639,312 project along Liberty Street between 12th and 14th streets expects to begin April 4 weather permitting.
Deemed the Liberty Street Streetscape Project, the project includes upgrades to the existing sidewalk and lighting to meet safety and ADA standards.
Improvements to pedestrian curb ramps that are showing signs of age and in places crumbling will also be done making them safer and bringing them into ADA compliance.
35 decorative light poles, many of which have shown signs of rusting will be replaced with near replicas.
During the project there will be some pedestrian detours but access to buisnesses will be maintained.
Motorists may encounter traffic controlled by flaggers as needed to complete work at intersections.
