The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that tree trimming is scheduled for Monday on Route 222 North (Lime Street) in Lancaster City, Lancaster County. This work is being performed to prepare for resurfacing of the street.

Weather permitting, tree trimming will be performed Monday, April 17, from approximately 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM. This will be a moving operation with the contractor working on either side of the street. There will be a lane restriction on the side where work is being performed. The other lane of traffic will remain open.

Parking will be restricted within the work area on Monday.

This work is part of a project that consists of milling, paving, base replacement, ADA updates, pavement markings, signal upgrades, and other miscellaneous construction on Route 222 North from the five-point intersection at Church and Vine streets to E. Liberty Street in the city.

Base repairs, milling and paving will be completed this year. Lane closures with a 10-foot width restriction will be in place during this part of the project.

Motorists may encounter lane closures and traffic shifts during daylight hours. No traffic restrictions will be in place during Barnstormer baseball games.

This project is expected to be completed by September 29, 2023. New Enterprise Stone and Lime Company, Inc., is the prime contractor on this $2,883,844 project.
