Sign Installation on Route 30 in Lancaster County; Work rescheduled after being postponed due to inclement weather

11/08/2019

Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that traffic will be restricted to a single lane in both directions on Route 30 between Harrisburg Pike and Route 741 (Roherstown Road) just west of the City of Lancaster in Lancaster County so an overhead sign can be installed.

Traffic on Route 30 will be restricted from 9 PM Wednesday, November 13, until 6 AM Thursday, November 14. Traffic will be stopped briefly while the sign structure is lifted into place.

This work originally was scheduled for the night of Wednesday, October 30, but was postponed due to inclement weather.

Motorists should be alert and watch for stopped or slow-moving traffic.

This work is part of a project that includes the installation of eight digital message boards and 10 traffic cameras on Route 30 and Route 283 in Lancaster County.


Bruce and Merilees Electric Company of New Castle PA is the prime contractor on this $4,575,000 project. Work is expected to be completed by February 2021.

Should Wednesday night’s work be impacted by weather, the sign will be installed the following night.
