WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Curb work will begin Tuesday on Pa. 16 and Pa. 316 in Waynesboro.

The concrete curb work marks the start of a larger repair and resurfacing project expected to be completed by the end of October.

Motorists might encounter lane restrictions on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., according to a press release from Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Engineering District 8.

PennDOT spokesman Mike Crochunis said crews will install curb ramps designed to be in compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility guidelines.


Parking and pedestrian traffic might be affected during this phase of the project, Crochunis said.

The repair and resurfacing project includes a 3.21-mile section of Pa. 16 from the West Branch of Antietam Creek in Waynesboro to Iroquois Trail near the Village of Wayne Heights in Washington Township and a 0.51-mile section of Pa. 316 from Pa. 16 to Orchard Road in Waynesboro.

PennDOT anticipates the contractor will adjust to a 6 p.m.-to-6 a.m. paving schedule to remove the top layer of asphalt, resurface the roadway with a bituminous overlay and paint new traffic lines.

The contractor has agreed to suspend construction activities over the Labor Day and 30K Marathon Run weekends.

The $1,897,357 project contract was awarded to Highway Materials Inc. of Blue Bell, Pa., and includes concrete curb work, base repair, milling, paving and new traffic lines.
