July 25, 2008

ROUZERVILLE, Pa. - Construction crews are placing long-term work-zone signs this week in preparation for a paving and tree-trimming project scheduled to start Monday on a nearly two-mile stretch of Pen Mar Road in Washington Township, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced in a news release.

The road will be repaired and resurfaced from Old Route 16 to the Maryland state line in Pen Mar, the release states.

Almost 3,000 vehicles use the road daily, the release states.

Crews are scheduled to spend four weeks repairing the roadway base, removing four trees, adjusting drainage grates, and installing two inlets and two drainage cross pipes in preparation for contract paving. Traffic may be restricted to a single lane.

PennDOT has contracted with J.D. Eckman of Atglen, Pa., to conduct the highway improvement project on Pen Mar Road at a cost of $746,703.
