LANCASTER COUNTY, PA — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) has slated a week-long litter cleanup operation starting Monday, April 22. The initiative, focusing on the Route 30, Route 222, and Route 283 corridors, aims to rid these vital passageways of unsightly debris.

Scheduled to take place from 7:30 AM to 2:30 PM daily until Friday, April 26, the cleanup activities are set to cause minimal disruption to the flow of traffic. PennDOT officials have assured that any necessary lane restrictions will be limited to off-peak hours, between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM, to minimize inconvenience to motorists. Drivers traversing these routes during the cleanup period are urged to remain vigilant and watch for the presence of workers and maintenance vehicles adjacent to the roadways.

By removing litter, the department not only enhances the visual landscape but also contributes to the prevention of potential hazards that debris on the roads can pose to drivers and wildlife alike.

As the operation commences, motorists are reminded to exercise caution and patience, ensuring the safety of both the cleanup crews and fellow travelers.
