Linglestown Gazette: Tight budget could delay village improvements

Tight budget could delay village improvements

Lower Paxton Township officials have said in recent months that the budget for the Linglestown improvement project is tight due to rising construction costs.

The township has about $4 million socked away for construction costs. If the lowest bid comes in significantly higher than $4 million, the project could be temporarily shelved while state and local officials try to line up additional funding.

PennDOT, the state’s transportation agency, is expected to bid the project early this summer.

Planned improvements include two traffic roundabouts, decorative streetlights, benches, stamped concrete sidewalks and trees.

Funding sources:

Lower Paxton Township has received the following funding commitments for upgrades to the village: $2.65 million in a federal Transportation Bill earmark, $1.9 million from PennDOT, and $638,445 in grant money from the state's Hometown Street program. In addition, the township was awarded a $700,000 local grant from Dauphin County.

Some of the money has been used for design costs and acquisition of right-of-ways.
