Work is starting on the 10th Street repaving project in Lebanon, part of a years-long repaving and underground utility upgrade program for the city’s main arteries that began in 2019.

From Monday, Aug. 22, through Friday, Aug. 26, crews will be removing the old surface of a 2.3-mile stretch of West Maple Street/South 10th Street (Route 72 South) in the city, from the city line north of Coleman Park south to Poplar Street.

The city suggests that motorists entering the city from the north on West Maple Street (SR 72) use a detour route of southbound 12th Street, east on Walnut Street (US 422), then south on 10th Street (SR 72).

Enforcement of posted street sweeping routes and the sweeping of non-posted streets will be suspended on the following streets for the week of Aug. 22:

  • Guilford Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Mifflin Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Lehman Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Church Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Scull Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • C and L Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Willow Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Cumberland Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Chestnut Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Walnut Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Locust Street — from 9th Street to 11th Street
  • Oak Street — from 10th Street to 12th Street
  • Elm Street — from 10th Street to 12th Street
  • Poplar Street — from 10th Street to 12th Street

The city is urging motorists to not attempt to bypass work crews by taking shortcuts around active parts of the work zone, and to obey signs and flaggers along the route.
