Local access will be maintained up to the work zone. Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling near the work area because backups and delays will occur. All scheduled activities are weather dependent.
Under this improvement project, PennDOT stated it will construct a single-lane roundabout to enhance traffic flow through the intersection and install new drainage facilities and roundabout lighting.
The purpose of the project is to reduce angle crashes and vehicular speeds; increase sight distance; and improve congestion through the intersection.
Allan Myers of Worcester, PA, is the general contractor on the $1.59 million project, which is financed with 100% federal funds. The entire project is expected to finish in the summer of 2023.
