Montoursville, PA – A 10.9-mile highway restoration project on Interstate 80 in Liberty and Valley townships, Montour County, is set to begin next week.
Beginning at approximately 7 p.m. Sunday, August 18, various sections of the left (passing) lane and shoulder on I-80 westbound will be closed between Danville and the Northumberland County line for shoulder reconstruction.
Traffic will be restored to two lanes by 9 a.m. Friday, August 23.
This project includes concrete patching, spall repair, joint sealing and diamond grinding on I-80 westbound and eastbound. The contractor will work through the current construction season. There will be a winter shutdown. Work will resume in the spring and is expected to be completed next fall.
HRI, Inc., is the prime contractor on this $4.6 million project.
