Drainage work scheduled in advance of asphalt paving
Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that its contractor will resume work on a project to repair and resurface a 2.77-mile section of Route 24 from just south of Cross Roads Avenue in Hopewell Township, through North Hopewell Township to Route 216 in Winterstown Borough, York County.
The $1,257,000 contract was awarded on November 13, 2019, to New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc., of the Village of New Enterprise, Bedford County, and includes tree trimming, clearing drainage pipes, adjusting inlets, roadway base replacement, removal of the top layer of asphalt, resurfacing the roadway with a 3-inch Superpave warm-mix asphalt overlay, and installation of new guiderail, signs and pavement markings.
Beginning Monday, May 4, travelers may encounter lane shifts and single-lane restrictions with flaggers directing traffic through the work zone during daylight hours as crews conduct drainage and base repair work in advance of asphalt paving this year.
This section of Route 24, known locally as Winterstown Road, averages more than 3,000 vehicles traveled daily. To avoid delays, travelers should allow for additional time in their plans or seek an alternate route.
Travelers are reminded to be alert for these operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones for their safety as well as for the safety of the road crews.
Work on this project will be in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job-site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the jobsite, and relevant training.
