Harrisburg, PA – There is just one more day to go to finish a repaving operation on westbound Route 22 (also known as Jonestown Road) between Interstate 83 in Lower Paxton Township and 39th Street in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County. Motorists are advised that they will encounter westbound Route
22 restricted to a single lane starting at around 6:30 AM on Wednesday, Aug.
24, and continuing for most of the day. The single lane westbound traffic restriction will begin on the bridge over I-83 and continue to just short of 39th Street. The traffic restriction is necessary so that PennDOT maintenance crews can finish paving the right lane and seal the pavement joints.

Motorists are asked to be alert to this operation, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through the work zone.
Motorists
may also want to add additional time in their travel plans and/or seek alternate routes in order to avoid travel delays.

This portion of westbound Route 22 has been characterized by rough pavement

over the past year. PennDOT maintenance crews on Monday milled (i.e.,
removed)
the top 1 to 2 inches of the old pavement surface of this portion of the road between I-83 and 39th Street. On Tuesday, the westbound left lane was repaved with new asphalt. On Wednesday, the right lane will be paved. After the pavement joints are sealed later in the day on Wednesday, the operation should be complete.
