2024/2025 Road Paving Project
As part of our ongoing commitment to improving our community, the Borough of Mechanicsburg is planning a 2025 Road Program project. The paving program will take place on portions of West Keller Street, West Coover Street, North Race Street, South George Street, Norway Street, Broad Street, South West Street, East Coover Street, West Portland Street, East Schoolside Drive and York Circle. Before paving can commence, we need to ensure the safety and accessibility of these streets by repairing and replacing curbs, sidewalks, ADA ramps, and driveway aprons in the areas proposed to be paved in 2025. Many may have already noticed markings throughout these areas, the markings aim to identify deficiencies so they can be corrected to enhance everyday travel and make the Borough an even better place to live. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work towards these improvements together!

Can I park on the sidewalk to get my car farther off the road?
Here at the Borough, we understand the worries that residents may have when it comes to on street parking.  However, it has become a common sight in the Borough to see vehicles parked on the sidewalks. It is important to remember that per PA’s Vehicle Code (Title 75), there are prohibitions regarding parking a vehicle on a sidewalk. Title 75 states that no person shall park a vehicle on a sidewalk 3353 (a) (1) (ii). Parking your vehicle on a sidewalk can result in you receiving a parking ticket or a citation.  Why is this such an important matter, you may ask? By parking a vehicle on a sidewalk, this obstructs the walking path used by the pedestrians in the Borough. This, in turn, decreases the overall safety for pedestrians using the sidewalks. Help us make the Borough a safer place for pedestrian traffic by keeping your cars off the sidewalk – and by reminding friends and neighbors to do the same.
