N. Houcks Road & Devonshire Road

Lower Paxton Township is replacing the undersized Winfield Street storm sewer system with larger pipes to more efficiently handle current flows to drain storm runoff. The replacement of the storm sewer system will also enhance erosion control.  Although the storm sewer mainline is located in Winfield Street, significant stormwater improvements will also occur on Devonshire Road and N. Houcks Road.  This work will result in traffic delays and detours.

The work to be performed will reduce the potential of flooding events resulting from storms and also decrease the health and safety concerns when flood waters overtake roadways, residences and businesses. The Project will use high quality material and construction methods.

In addition to the above, the Township will be reconstructing N. Houcks Road between Devonshire Road and U.S. Route 22 (Jonestown Road), including roadway widening, curbing, and sidewalk on the west side of the road.

The Project site is located on and around Winfield Street, Harrisburg, PA 17109 between Cove Road (to the west) and Care Street (to the east).

The contractor for this $1.7 million Project is Doli Construction, Inc.

The Project was scheduled for final completion by October 15, 2017.  However, completion has been delayed due to the unexpected need for Suez (water) and then, UGI (gas) to replace their underground mainlines.  This utility work was not able to be accomplished concurrently.  This project is now substaintially complete, with minor restortation work remaining in the spring of 2018..
