WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Gehr Road north of Stottlemyer Road will be closed from 7 a.m to 4:30 p.m. weekdays for two to three weeks starting Tuesday as crews install utility lines for the 180-unit Spring Run Development and raise the road level three feet.
Washington Township, Pa., officials warned the road will be rough during the work.
Construction will begin Monday, but contractor D.L. George & Sons plans to keep one lane of traffic open to the public Monday.
Raising Gehr Road three feet is intended to bring it to the same level as the newest stretch of Washington Township Boulevard, according to Township Manager Mike Christopher.
"Washington Township Boulevard is higher than the (existing) Gehr Road is," he said.
The portion of Gehr Road that will be raised is 400 to 500 feet in length, Christopher said.
"We'll remove the existing paving, stockpile that and bring in fill material," he said.
