PHILIPSBURG – Just when you were getting used to traffic patterns in downtown Philipsburg they have changed. Contractors began work on the next block of the project this week.
Front Street is now closed for one block between Pine and Laurel Streets as work continues on the streetscape enhancement project and the borough’s sanitary and storm water replacement project. There may be periodic closures of Front Street, between Spruce and Pine Streets, as work is not complete on that block, however that block is now open for local traffic.
In addition, Pine Street is now two-way from Centre Street to Front Street with parking on the south side only. Spruce Street is also open to two-way traffic from Centre Street to Front Street with parking on the North side only.
If you are traveling to a downtown destination call the business ahead of time to inquire about the best way to access their building. Please continue to support our local merchants over the next few months as the construction continues.
For more information call the Main Street Manager at 814-342-2260 or Philipsburg Borough at 814-342-3440.
