The $21.75 million project located between Park Quarry Road and Route 989 includes realignment of the roadway, culvert replacements, roadway reconstruction and widening, new shoulders, guide rail updates, drainage improvements, additional turn-lanes, a roundabout installation, and utility relocations. Motorists will see detours, single-lane restrictions, lane narrowing, and alternating traffic during different stages of construction.

Motorists can check conditions on major roadways by visiting 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 1,000 traffic cameras.
