Resurfacing of part of U.S. 11 in Greencastle to begin Monday

March 07, 2012

GREENCASTLE, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that roadway base and inlet work will begin Monday on a project to repair and resurface a 1.35-mile section of U.S. 11 in the Borough of Greencastle.

Most of the existing concrete pavement throughout the project was placed in 1954. A small section was resurfaced in 2005, according to a news release.

The $1.3 million contract was awarded on Oct. 3, 2011, to Valley Quarries Inc., a division of New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co. Inc. of New Enterprise, Bedford County, Pa., the news release stated.

The contract includes drainage improvements, roadway base replacement, concrete patching, milling, paving, guiderail installation and new traffic lines.

PennDOT said motorists might encounter shifting traffic patterns and temporary lane restrictions during the next four months as crews work on the road between Franklin Street in Greencastle and Commerce Street in Antrim Township.
