HARRISBURG, Pa.(WHTM) — PennDOT will be conducting roadwork along the Centerville Road Interchange on Route 30 in Lancaster County.
The work was originally scheduled to occur between Tuesday, Dec. 6, and Thursday, Dec. 8, but on Monday, PennDOT said the timeline was pushed back due to forecasted rain. The work is now tentatively expected to begin on Wednesday, Dec. 7, and continue on Thursday, Dec. 8, PennDOT said. This work will be performed at night as a result of the forecasted rain.
This work is part of the Centerville Road Interchange Improvement Project in East Hempfield Township.
PennDOT states that work will include removing and repainting pavement markings in advance of a traffic shift toward the outside shoulders. This traffic shift will allow work to be performed on the median pier supporting the Centerville Road bridge spanning Route 30.
Weather permitting, this work will be performed on Wednesday Dec. 7, and Thursday, Dec. 8 from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. on both days. Work will be done on Route 30 eastbound on Wednesday and on Route 30 westbound on Thursday.
There will be night-time lane restrictions in both directions of Route 30 from 8 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday so the barrier can be set along the median to complete the traffic shift. This shift was previously expected to occur on Sunday, Nov. 20, but was postponed due to cold temperatures, according to PennDOT.
Motorists are encouraged to find alternate routes as heavy delays are expected. Those traveling through the work zone should be alert and drive with caution.
