The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced that Water Street (Route 1035) in Lititz Borough, Lancaster County, is scheduled to be closed just north of Route 772 (Main Street) so a Norfolk Southern Railroad crossing can be removed and paved over.
Weather permitting, this work will be performed Monday, March 20, through Thursday, March 23, with Friday, March 24 is reserved as a weather date. Water Street will be closed at the crossing and a detour will be in place using Route 772 (Main Street), Route 501 (Broad Street) and T-856 (Newport Road).
Water Street will be open to local traffic on either side of the closure.
This work is part of a 1.5-mile resurfacing project on Route 772 (Main Street) in Lititz Borough from Route 501 (Broad Street) eastward to the borough line. This project also includes work on Water Street (Route 1035) from Route 772 (Main Street) to the Warwick Township line.
The contractor will perform ADA curb ramp work on Main Street beginning Monday, March 6. There will be traffic shifts or single-lane traffic restrictions during daylight hours with flaggers assisting motorists through the work zone.
No lane closures are permitted from 6:00 AM to 8:30 AM every day and from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM on Fridays.
Once the curb ramp work is completed, the contractor will perform base repairs, milling and paving throughout the project limits.
Access will be maintained on Water Street for the pedestrian walkway and trail at Lititz Run Bridge, and at the New Street Park Nature Trail at the Santo Domingo Creek bridge.
JVI Group, Inc., of York Springs, is the prime contractor on this $1,260,025 project. Work is expected to be completed by May 19, 2023.
