N. 6th Street will be closed from Whitehall Street to Sumner Avenue beginning on Wednesday, May 27 until further notice for a rain garden construction project.
This is the continuation of a project that began in March to construct a Best Management Practice Stormwater Management Basin at the lawn island at the intersection of 6th Street and Sumner Avenue.
The project is funded by a $250,000.00 Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant.
The work will result in an environmentally friendly stormwater management and water quality basin that will control stormwater and increase stormwater quality.
The basin will include a subsurface infiltration bed as well as plantings that will enhance water quality.
