Work on and around Carlisle’s streets is expected to continue into September.
Traffic signal upgrades at Orange and West High streets were tentatively scheduled to begin Tuesday, according to a post on the borough’s Facebook page.
The work is expected to cause minimal disruptions, and will be done when school buses for Carlisle Area School District are not running. There may be lane shifts during the project, but no lane closures.
Traffic in Carlisle will be affected by utility work today.
The borough received a $139,385 Green Light-Go grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to modernize the signal. According to the borough’s Facebook post, the pedestal poles and wires will be replaced with galvanized poles and mast arms. Video detection at the intersection will be replaced with an infrared detection system.
The changes are intended to improve traffic safety and reduce maintenance costs.
The borough contracted with Atlantic Transportation Systems of Camp Hill for $161,000 for the project.

The borough also said work on a Green Streets project on West Louther Street would resume Tuesday after closing down last week for Dickinson College students to move in. West Louther Street will be closed from just past College Street to Cherry Street for crews from the borough’s Public Works Field Operations department to install curb extensions with stormwater retention basins.
The changes are expected to reduce the effect of flooding and stormwater runoff. The borough was awarded a $143,400 grant from the Department of Environmental Protection for stormwater management for the project.
Westbound traffic on High Street returned to normal last week when a sidewalk replacement project completed. At times, the work partially blocked the traffic lane and parking was unavailable in front of Create-A-Palooza in the first block of East High Street.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection this week issued a notice of violation to Carlisle Borough as a result of its investigation into the July 31 fish kill in Letort Spring Run.
Karen Griffith, owner of Create-A-Palooza, said it was a “complex and costly” project for the building’s owner as the sidewalk had risen by several inches to become a tripping hazard.
UGI continued its work to restore areas of North College Street between Lincoln and North streets where the utility had dug up the street surface for previous utility work.
UGI spokesman Joseph Swope said crews typically cold patch the areas in which they did cuts and then allow the ground to settle before final paving.
“That should see permanent restoration in three weeks,” he said.
Crews also continued their work on the LeTort Interceptor sewer rehabilitation project recently on East North Street near the bridge over LeTort Spring Run and at the intersection of East North and North Spring Garden streets.
The project involves about 4.5 miles of sewer mains that take sewage from the borough to the sewer plant on the banks of the Conodoguinet Creek in Middlesex Township. Sections of the pipe date to 1914 and have outlived their useful life.
