ROADWORK with closures
For Immediate Release-
As previously reported- State Route 34 in the 100 Block of South Baltimore Avenue has been closed for railroad maintenance by Norfolk Southern. It was originally reported that the work would be completed on Wednesday May 20th, but the project has been delayed. The project is now projected to wrap up on Friday May 22nd. Route 34 will not be passable through Mt. Holly Springs until the work is completed. A detour of 31 miles is being provided as an alternate way around the borough. Emergency services have been made aware of the closure and individuals will not be without important emergency access. The Borough of Mount Holly Springs apologizes for any inconvenience and are working diligently to provide information to our community as it becomes available.

On Monday May 18, 2020 through Wednesday May 20, 2020 Norfolk Southern will be closing South Baltimore Avenue (State Route 34) for maintenance to their railroad tracks. The road will be closed at the 100 block of South Baltimore Avenue. This work will take place 24 hours a day until the work is completed. Route 34 will be unpassable until the work is completed. A detour of 31 miles is being provided as an alternate way around the borough. Emergency services have been made aware of the closure and individuals will not be without important emergency access. The Borough of Mount Holly Springs apologizes for the late notice and are working diligently to provide information to our community as it becomes available. The Borough of Mount Holly Springs asks residents to limit non-essential traffic traveling on that section of the borough to help ease the traffic through the borough.
Road closures are scheduled for Mountain Street and East Pine Street starting next week. Our plan is to close Mountain Street on Monday May 11th and install new drainage pipes across the roadway. Mountain street will be closed just south of Cedar Street for the entire day. Local residents will need to decide which way best gives them access to their homes.
Starting Tuesday the Borough will be closing East Pine Street at Mountain Street and at the railroad tracks. This section of the roadway will have all new drain pipes and boxes installed. The residents that live on that block of East Pine Street, we will do our best to allow you access to your driveways. There will be no parking allowed on East Pine Street from the railroad tracks to Mountain Street.
On Monday May 18th, Norfolk Southern plans on lifting their tracks on East pine Street. At that time the Borough will install a 20 inch pipe under the railroad tracks. This project could take a few days. Again East Pine Street will be closed to all traffic and no parking will be permitted on that section of the roadway.
Additional road closures will be needed when the roadways are being paved. Those dates are not set as of today’s date. We asked that residents be patient as we will do our best to upgrade our infrastructure and roadways.

Update- 3.16.2020: During a time of uncertainty and confusion- the Borough of Mount Holly Springs is offering as much clarity as we are able. Please find current information from reliable sources below so that you are prepared and able to respond to this virus in the most educated way possible. While it is pertinent to be prepared- please do not forget your friends and neighbors who may be without. It is so important that we lean on each other (metaphorically, not physically!) and care for our own. If you find that you are over prepared or got caught up in the hype at the grocery store- please consider donating to a elderly neighbor or low income family. Do not forget about the local organizations who will likely be overwhelmed by people facing a loss of income or extra mouths to feed. As always- the borough staff are able to provide information on helpful organizations if you are struggling and direct you to people who can help.
Update- 3.13.2020: Due to a surplus of information about the disease from both trusted and distrustful sources , the Pennsylvania Health Department has offered these facts sheets to help people better understand the virus.

Remembering Jerome Guise
In the early morning hours of Monday, March 9, 2020 the Borough of Mount Holly Springs lost an incredible member of not only our community- but our family. Firefighter Jerome Guise gave the ultimate sacrifice while working selflessly to save the life of another during a fire in Boiling Springs. People often ask what someone is willing to sacrifice as a volunteer, and yesterday it was evident. The borough stands alongside our fire department and the friends and family of Firefighter Jerome Guise as we all mourn the loss of a person who embodied what it meant to be a selfless member of our community. A fund has been set up to offer support to the Guise Family and his children. Donations can be made at F&M Trust at 3 E. First Street in Boiling Springs.
