South Plum Street Resurfacing

South Plum Street, between Donegal Springs Road and Wood Street, will be repaved in 2017.  The property owners will be repairing sidewalks and curbs and ADA ramps will be updated or added where it is necessary to comply with the latest ADA requirements.  After the concrete work is completed, existing asphalt will be milled at the curbs to allow for a leveling course of asphalt that will be applied to assure proper slopes for drainage and then a 1.5 inch overlay of asphalt will be applied for the wearing course.

Marietta Avenue Paving

PennDOT will be paving Marietta Avenue in 2018 from the Marietta Avenue Amtrak Bridge to the Borough line. As part of this project, Mount Joy Borough received funding for a pedestrian improvement project from New Haven Street to the Borough line.  This project will provide a much needed pedestrian access to the Milanof Schock Library and the surrounding developments from the downtown area.

Bridge Blvd and W. Henry Street Resurfacing

Bridge Blvd and W. Henry St resurfacing projects were completed early fall of 2016, with a new integrated paving solution. This new process is called Cement Stabilized Base Course. With this new pavement style, the material is much stronger and durable then the standard stone base. Cement treated base course thickness is less then your typical stone bases which helps distribute weigh loads over a greater area, in terms reduces the stress on the subgrade. This acts as the load-carrying element of a flexible pavement for concrete.

Sidewalks and Curbs

The Borough has been working steadily to improve the conditions of sidewalks within the Borough. In areas where there are no sidewalks, the Borough continues to work to have them installed. When a street is planned to be paved, the sidewalks and curbs on that street will be surveyed. Upgrades and / or installation of sidewalks and curbs will be required before paving is completed. The Borough will give the property owners as much notice as possible if curb and / or sidewalk work is required. Please be aware that if your curbs and sidewalks are not in good condition, you may receive a notice to have the deficiencies corrected.
