May 20, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Wednesday the repairs to U.S. 30 are slated to begin on May 27. This project is being funded through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus money.

The $2.4 million contract was awarded on April 22 to Valley Quarries Inc., of Chambersburg. Work will include repair and resurfacing of six miles of U.S. 30 in Franklin County, from Norlo Road to the Adams County line, according to a news release.

On May 27, construction crews have scheduled drainage repairs along the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30 near Caledonia State Park in Greene Township.

Average daily traffic volumes on this section of U.S. 30, known locally as Lincoln Highway, range from 11,000 to 17,500 vehicles, the news release stated.

PennDOT said motorists traveling in the area might encounter shifting and single-lane traffic patterns and alternating traffic through the work-zone on weekdays as crews work to improve drainage, replace sections of the roadway base, remove the top layer of asphalt, resurface the roadway and paint new traffic lines. PennDOT expects work to be complete by the end of October.

The U.S. 30 project is one of 22 projects in PennDOT's eight-county District 8 region being funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
