Update: 2nd Street final paving to begin this week, impacting parking

N. 2nd and Kelker streets

Paving on Harrisburg’s N. 2nd Street two-way conversion project soon will be completed.

The city announced on Tuesday that the roadway, from Forster to Muench streets, will be paved on Thursday and Friday.

Crews will pave the northbound traffic and parking lanes of N. 2nd Street on Sept. 22 and the new southbound traffic and parking lanes on Sept. 23.

The new southbound lane will allow for two-way traffic on the street, but the two-way conversion won’t make the switch until early October.

Paving on all side roads will take place the following week, from Monday, Sept. 26 through Friday, Sept. 30. Boas, Herr, Cumberland, Charles, Verbeke, Sayford, Calder, Reily, Harris, Hamilton, Kelker and Meunch streets will be paved on both sides of N. 2nd Street

Parking will be impacted on N. 2nd Street during paving. Side road parking will be affected 100 feet past the intersection. Ticketing will be enforced.

According to the city, the entire two-way conversion project, from Forster to Division streets, is expected to be completed by early October.
