Motorists are advised to allow extra time when traveling through the work areas because slowdowns will occur. All scheduled activities are weather-dependent.

Under these improvement projects, PennDOT is milling the existing roadway surface and repaving the state highways with new asphalt. The new pavement will seal the roadways and provide motorists with a smoother riding surface.

Motorists can check current road conditions by visiting the MyChesCo Traffic Center.
