Parking will be limited near Lebanon City Hall during work on a streetscape improvement project on Cumberland Street.

The project will feature new sidewalks between 4th and 12th streets, as well as curbing, a stamped brick concrete beauty strip, and tree replacement for diseased and missing trees. Most improvements on the south side were completed in 2023, but work on the north side has recently resumed.

Preparations for the project have already begun with saw cuts to the curb and sidewalk for the area in front of City Hall. The demolition of the sidewalk, along with the rest of the 700 block, will begin on Thursday, March 28, after the conclusion of the William D. Lebo Memorial Walk. As a result, parking will not be allowed on the north side of Cumberland Street in front of City Hall until the sidewalk has been replaced.

City Hall will remain open to the public during construction, but visitors are encouraged to park in the parking lot at 7th & Willow and follow the pathway along the east side of City Hall to reach the main entrance.

The crosswalk at Liberty and Chapel streets will also be closed for a period of time during construction. The city reminds drivers to pay attention to traffic signs and exercise caution in the area for safety. Additional directions may be posted in the area as construction progresses.

Questions should be directed to the Department of Administration at 717-639-2800, option 5.
