Nighttime roadway work scheduled for Lancaster’s Harrisburg Pike
HARRISBURG, Pa. – PennDOT says that on Monday, July 18, its contractor will begin nighttime roadway base repair work on a 2.12-mile section of Harrisburg Pike in Lancaster County from the intersection with Plaza Boulevard near Park City Center in Manheim Township over U.S. 30 and along Long’s Park, Franklin & Marshall College, and Clipper Magazine Stadium to the intersection with North Prince Street and southbound U.S. 222 in Lancaster City.
The $1,915,476.76 contract was awarded on May 10 to Pennsy Supply, Inc., of Annville, Lebanon County, and includes base repair, drainage work, curb cut work required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, removal of the top layer of asphalt, resurfacing the existing roadway and shoulders, accelerated concrete patching, guide-rail replacement, and new signs and pavement markings. Work under this construction contract is scheduled to be completed by mid-September 2017.
PennDOT advises travelers that the contractor has agreed not to restrict travel lanes between 6 AM and 9 PM, or to interfere with the Long’s Park Sunday concert series or Lancaster Barnstormer home game traffic.
PennDOT advises motorists that initially they may encounter lane shifts with flaggers directing traffic through intersections between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. for nighttime base repair work. Drainage and ADA curb work operations should follow on weekdays after 8:30 a.m. Then crews will schedule nighttime milling and paving operations between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m from mid-September through mid-October. Night work will resume in the spring for accelerated concrete patching.
Some sections of Harrisburg Pike, officially designated as State Route 4020, average nearly 20,000 vehicles traveled daily. To avoid delays, travelers should allow for additional time in their plans or seek an alternate route.
Motorists are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones, not only for their safety, but for the safety of the road crews.
