PennDOT District 8 today announced that on April 29 at 6 a.m. construction crews will close a section of U.S. Route 222 and begin excavating in preparation to install a large concrete pipe and reconstruct a section of road near the Village of Goshen in Fulton Township, Lancaster County.

PennDOT advises travelers that from April 29 through May 6 U.S. Route 222 will be closed to through traffic between Ulrich Road and Goshen Mill Road in southern Lancaster County. Until then, a detour which follows Route 272 to Goshen Mill Road will be in place.


This section of U.S. Route 222, locally known as the Robert Fulton Highway, averages nearly 4,000 vehicles traveled daily.

The $2.6 million contract is being conducted by Pennsy Supply, Inc., of Annville, Lebanon County, and includes roadway base repair, drainage work, pipe replacement, milling and resurfacing, guiderail installation and new traffic lines.


Work under this construction contract began in Sept. 2012 and is part of an overall project to repair and resurface a 5.5-mile section of U.S. Route 222 from the intersection with Route 272 in the Village of Penn Hill to the intersection with Church Road in the Village of Mechanics Grove in southern Lancaster County.
