Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that starting Monday, March 11, its contractor will begin preparatory work on a project to realign the intersection of Route 94, Route 394, and Stoney Point Road at the Village of Hampton and construct a new roundabout in Reading Township, Adams County.
The $1,488,569 contract was awarded on October 29, 2018, to Kinsley Construction, Inc. of the City of York, York County, and includes staged roadway reconstruction, drainage improvements, placement of concrete curb, sidewalk, splitter islands, truck aprons, and a central island, and new lighting, signs, crosswalks, and pavement markings. Work under this construction contract is scheduled to be completed by the end of September 2019.
PennDOT advises travelers that the contractor will not restrict travel lanes any day between 6:00 AM and 8:30 AM, and on Fridays between 3:30 PM and 6:00 PM. During working hours, motorists may encounter lane shifts and single-lane restrictions with flaggers directing traffic through the work zone during daylight hours as crews conduct drainage and concrete work and reconstruct the roadway.
Route 94, locally known as Carlisle Pike, averages 8,250 vehicles traveled through this intersection on a daily basis. To avoid delays, travelers should allow for additional time in their plans or seek an alternate route.
PennDOT advises motorists that eventually Stoney Point Road will be closed to through traffic starting Tuesday, March 26, for up to 24 days while the roadway is realigned and reconstructed. Until then, a detour which follows Route 234 and Route 94 will be available for motorists. Stoney Point Road, officially designated as State Route 1007, averages more than 1,600 vehicles traveled daily.
Motorists are reminded to be alert for construction operations, to obey work zone signs, and to slow down when approaching and traveling through work zones, not only for their safety, but for the safety of the road crews.
