City of Lock Haven Levee Sealcoating and Base Repair Project 

UPDATE: 9/15/2020

The Levee project is ahead of schedule and the contractor will begin the seal-coating process tomorrow, Wednesday, September 16, until Friday, September 18.

The levee will be temporarily closed until the seal-coat application is dry enough for pedestrian traffic.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience during this project.

The City of Lock Haven opened and awarded a bid to perform repairs and sealcoat the walking path on the Levee to M&M Asphalt out of Williamsport, PA on March 3rd, 2020. With the restrictions due to COVID-19 this project had been pushed back until after Labor Day. 

Starting Monday, September 14th M&M Asphalt will be performing the work for a duration of two weeks. There will be temporary closures to the Levee as they progress with their repairs. Pedestrians are reminded to be cautious while on the Levee and to not enter an active work zone. The contractor will need the entire width of the walking path to perform their work. 

During the sealcoating process the Levee will be cleaned of debris and shut down at the ramps and access areas to deter pedestrians from using. Once the process is complete the contractor will open the ramps and access areas for pedestrians. 

For more information please email dpw@lockhavenpa.gov or call 570-893-5917.
