Weather permitting; the Bedford Borough Municipal Authority’s contractor will be prepping and finalizing paving trench/road surfaces that were damaged during the recent installation of new sewer pipes. To complete this work, temporary “NO PARKING” zones are being established between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. along both sides of the following streets:

Proposed Paving Schedule:
➢ October 3rd until October 5th –  Bedford Street
➢ October 5th until October 13th –  East Street, Wood Street & Vondersmith Avenue

Paving for All Locations Will Last Approximately 2 Weeks

The above streets will also be temporarily closed to all traffic during the aforementioned times while the work is in progress and while the asphalt is cooling. Persons having driveway entrances in these areas may want to park outside the construction zones on these days.

Vehicle operators should be alert to traffic delays, altered traffic patterns, construction equipment, and workers during the aforementioned times.

Radio Stations, Bedford Gazette, Bedford County Free Press and the County Communications Center will be notified when the work is completed and also of any changes to this plan.
