Street Paving

The following streets are scheduled to be paved in the fall of 2020:

  • Highlawn Avenue (Willow Street to Hanover Street)
  • Sherfield Court
  • Sherfield Drive (Cliff Lane to Sherfield Court)
  • Foxchase Drive (Gerald Drive to Foxfield Lane)
  • Foxfield Lane

Each year the Borough's Public Works crew spends the summer before paving begins replacing sanitary sewer lines, installing storm sewers, and monitoring curb and sidewalk installation. The Elizabethtown Area Water Authority replaces water lines and hydrants as required.  Property owners are notified at least a year in advance of all paving projects.  The notification may also contain information on curb and sidewalk repairs that may be needed.

Each year the Borough’s Public Works crew also flush sewer lines in selected areas of town in preparation for the following years street paving. Once flushing is complete, sewer lines are examined via camera to identify areas requiring repairs. While back-ups during the flushing process are not the norm, they occasionally do occur. With the possible exception of an emergency, residents will be notified prior to the flushing exercise, and it is recommended residents take extra precautions such as closing the toilet bowl lid and placing a towel or plastic wrap over the bowl. It is also important for residents to be aware that under the Pennsylvania Governmental Immunity Statute, the Borough has limited legal responsibility for sewer backups. Residents are advised to contact their homeowners or commercial insurance agent to determine if their policy includes sewer or water backups.
