PennDOT has announced that the closure planned for this weekend on a 3-mile resurfacing project on River Road (Route 3030) in Manor Township, Lancaster County, has been rescheduled due to the forecast for low temperatures. Three weekend closures are needed so large pipes can be replaced.

Weather permitting, the first closure will be from 7:00 PM Friday, March 24, through 5:00 AM Monday, March 27, and will continue during the same hours the weekends of March 31-April 3, and April 14-17. There will be no closure the weekend of April 7-10.

A detour will be in place during the closures using Penn Street (Route 999), Central Manor Road (Route 3017), and Letort Road (Route 3032).

Should inclement weather or other unexpected conditions prevent the contractor from closing the road and replacing a pipe, the following weekend will be used for that pipe, and remaining work will be pushed out to the next weekend or weekends.

This project consists of asphalt resurfacing, base repairs, drainage replacement, guiderail updates, line painting, sign updates, and other miscellaneous construction on River Road (Route 3030) from the intersection with Letort Road (Route 3032) to the intersection with Penn Street (Route 999).

This project is expected to be completed by June 30, 2023.

Pennsy Supply, Inc., of Harrisburg is the prime contractor on this $2,986,561 project.
