Pa. 75 prep work to begin

February 20, 2009

MERCERSBURG, Pa. -- Construction crews will start placing long-term work zone signs and marking stations on Pa. 75 Monday in preparation for repairs to a six-mile stretch from just north of the intersection with Pa. 16 and Pa. 416 in Mercersburg to just south of the U.S. 30 intersection in Fort Loudon, according to a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation press release.

The section of what is known as Fort Loudon Road is traveled by an average of 2,100 vehicles per day.

Over the next several weeks, crews are scheduled to repair and adjust inlet boxes along the shoulder of the road, repair sections of the road base, install guide rails, resurface the highway and paint new lines, according to the release.

Motorists are advised they might encounter single-lane alternating traffic patterns with flaggers assisting them through the work zone, according to the release.

PennDOT has contracted with Valley Quarries of Chambersburg, Pa., to do the highway improvement project at a cost of $2,154,857.
