Construction crews will begin work Sunday night on a project to reconstruct the intersection of Central Boulevard and Route 641 in Hampden Township, Cumberland County.
PennDOT advises those who travel Route 641 that they may encounter single-lane traffic restrictions with flaggers assisting them through the work zone Sunday through Thursday evenings between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. as crews reconstruct the intersection with Central Boulevard; and weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. for work on the new traffic signal.
During overnight operations, there will be a signed detour available via Central Boulevard, Carlisle Pike and St. John's Church Rd. To avoid delays, drivers should allow for additional time in their plans or use the detour route.
PennDOT advises motorists who use the Route 581 West ramp for Route 641 that they will be required to use the detour route between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Motorists are advised to be alert for this operation, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones.
Route 641, known locally as Trindle Road, averages more than 21,000 vehicles per day.
The $1 million project is scheduled to be completed by the end of October.
