This is a notice of the milling and paving of Susquehanna Road from Strawbridge Road to Empress Tree Lane.

Driving will not be allowed on the road while the road work is being completed, as the road is going to be milled down 6-inches from the surface. Once the base has been completed driving will be allowed UNTIL paving begins. Once paving has started, this section of the road will be closed again.

We ask for your cooperation during this project. We understand that it is going to be inconvenient; however, the crew will be working to complete the work as quickly as safely possible.

If you have any questions, please contact the Borough office at 570-473-3414.

Additional updates will be posted on the Borough of Northumberland and Reuben Haines Facebook pages.

Stormwater construction work will be taking place from June 17, 2024 thru August 28, 2024. Construction will occur on Queen Street between 2nd Street and 7th Street, and at Orange Street and 7th Street.

The Borough apologizes for any inconvenience you may incur while this project is in operation.

Updates will be posted on Reuben Haines Facebook.

As you may know, a new surveillance system has been installed at the Second Street Playground. Any acts of vandalism and/or criminal activity will be investigated and perpetrator(s) will be charged.

REMINDER: Grass clippings on the road are a Quality of Life Ordinance violation. Grass clippings are dangerous to motorcycle riders and cyclists and they clog storm drains. You will get a ticket for a Quality of Life violation if grass clippings are in the road at your property. If you have a landscaping company mowing your lawn for you, the property owner will be receiving the ticket. For more information, please reference Chapter 42 of the Borough of Northumberland Code Book.

The Northumberland Police Department is putting together a list of homes and businesses in our community with outdoor cameras.
