STATE LINE, Pa. - Starting Monday, Aug. 13, U.S. 11 will be resurfaced from the Mason-Dixon Line to South Washington Street in Antrim Township, Pa., according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

Site preparations begin Wednesday, Aug. 8.

The project also includes resurfacing 5 1/2 miles of Pa. 16 from Mercersburg, Pa., to Upton, Pa., PennDOT spokesman Michael Crochunis said. About 6,200 vehicles use Pa. 16 in that area daily, he said.

U.S. 11 is used by 15,000 vehicles every day in the section that will be repaved, Crochunis said.

Traffic will be limited to one lane at times, and work could occur at night, according to a news release.

The project's contract was awarded to Valley Quarries of Chambersburg, Pa., at a cost of $1.6 million.

Work should be done in mid-November, Crochunis said.
