PennDOT to widen next section of Route 124

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

The state Department of Transportation announced that preparations are to begin April 15 on a project to widen and reconstruct another section of Route 124 in Springettsbury and York townships in York County.

PennDOT spokesman Mike Crochunis said Route 124 between Hartford Road and Route 24 is the third of five sections to be reconstructed under a $3.2 million project.

Crochunis said drivers should expect single lane restrictions weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. with flaggers directing traffic through the work zone as crews prepare for the construction. Eventually, traffic patterns will be shifted to allow a single lane in each direction with a center-turn lane.

PennDOT began work last spring to widen Route 124 just east of Interstate 83. A project to improve the Route 124 intersection with Route 24 is scheduled to begin in late 2013, followed by the reconstruction of the I-83 interchange with Route 124 at Exit 18.

Crochunis said work on this section of Route 124 is expected to be completed with final paving in spring 2015.
