During the week of March 27, work will transition to slope stabilization. There will be an alternating traffic pattern enforced by flaggers during daylight hours.

PennDOT says the resurfacing will help to improve the ride quality and extend the life of nearly a mile of highway and several ramps in Lewistown Borough and Derry Township.

The project will include the following:

  • Pavement and concrete repair
  • Drainage improvements
  • Pavement markings
  • Guide rail replacement
  • And other miscellaneous items

HRI, Inc. of State College is the contractor on the job, which costs $1.1 million. PennDOT is expecting to wrap up the project in late June and all work is weather dependent.
