The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to an online plan display regarding the SR 0034 (Spring Road) and SR 1001 (Cavalry Road ) intersection improvement project. This project is located in North Middleton Township, approximately 1.8 miles to the north of the Borough of Carlisle.
The purpose of this project is for the widening and reconstruction the SR 0034 and SR 1001 intersection to accommodate a dedicated SR 0034 southbound left turn lane.

The traffic control plan will utilize five stages during construction. One lane of traffic will be maintained along SR 0034 (Spring Road) and SR 1001 (Cavalry Road) in each direction during construction. All travel lanes will be maintained with a minimum width of 11-feet. The existing posted speed along SR 0034 and SR 1001 is 35 MPH which will remain in effect through the construction stages.
