WAYNESBORO, Pa. - The crews tearing up the surface of Main Street in Waynesboro all week were under orders to stop work early in front of the post office Wednesday so they wouldn't block the way for the stream of last-minute income tax filers.
There will be continued inconveniences along Main Street and parts of Pa. 16 east from the Square to Beck's Curve almost to Welty Road and west nearly all the way to Greencastle, Pa., as the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation repaves about 71/2 miles of Pa. 16 under a $1.1 million contract awarded to Valley Quarries of Chambersburg, Pa.
The contract calls for resurfacing and other work on the bridge over Little Antietam Creek just west of Waynesboro, said Ed North, a PennDOT supervisor assigned to Franklin County for more than 30 years.
