Under these improvement projects, PennDOT is milling and paving state highways to provide motorists with a smoother riding surface. The high friction surface treatment being applied to some roadways will help motorists maintain better control in both dry and wet driving conditions.

Work on these projects 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, special signage and relevant training.
