– Rep. Torren Ecker (R-Adams/Cumberland) is advising residents in Adams and Cumberland counties that several Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) projects are scheduled to begin in March.
PennDOT announced that starting Monday, March 18, its contractor will begin preparatory work on a project to repair and resurface two roads in eastern Adams County: a 3.24-mile section of Route 94 from the intersection with Pine Run Road in Hamilton Township along the Berwick-Oxford Township Line to just north of the intersection with Green Springs Road; and a nearly 1-mile section of Route 194 from the Abbottstown Borough-Berwick Township Line just south of the intersection with Town Circle to just north of the intersection with Short Cut Road in Hamilton Township.
PennDOT also announced that starting Monday, March 11, its contractor will begin preparatory work on a project to reconstruct the intersection of Old Harrisburg Road and Route 234. In the process, it will lower the roadway profile and improve sight distance in the Village of Heidlersburg in Tyrone Township, Adams County.
Southbound Old Harrisburg Road will soon be closed to through traffic starting April 1, for up to 88 days while the roadway is realigned and reconstructed. Until then, a detour which follows Route 94 and U.S. 15 to Route 234 will be available for motorists.
In addition to these road projects, PennDOT announced 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.
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.
“I’m really pleased to see these important infrastructure projects moving forward in our community,” said Ecker. “I’m sure a lot of residents will be pleased to see the final improvements soon.”
