Transportation plan clears way for 126 local projects

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A finalized list of highway and bridge projects that will begin this year as a result of the transportation bill signed last fall by Gov. Tom Corbett includes 126 projects in south central Pennsylvania.

PennDOT District 8 Executive Michael Keiser said 48 projects totaling around $66 million will start this year because of the law.

Those projects include the resurfacing of Interstate 283 in Dauphin County for $5.6 million and the resurfacing of eight miles of Route 283 in Lancaster County for $8.5 million.

Also, four miles of Route 222 in Lancaster County will be resurfaced for $4.4 million, and 5.4 miles of Route 17 in Perry County will be resurfaced for $2.7 million.

Keiser said the district will begin 80 other projects this year totaling $133 million.

Those projects include the Route 441 bypass around Columbia for $14 million, and a $10 million safety improvement project at the Route 30 intersection with Route 41 in Gap, Lancaster County.

Other work this year includes a $3 million improvement project to install adaptive traffic signals on the Route 22 and Carlisle Pike corridors in the greater Harrisburg area, and the $12.2 million rehabilitation project that began this week on the Mulberry Street Bridge in Harrisburg.

Statewide, more than $2.1 billion in highway and bridge projects will begin this year. Spending under the law will total about $950 million in 2014, rising to $2.3 billion in 2017.

The work is being financed by increases in fuel taxes and driver fees and fines.
