Work to improve U.S. 11-Pa. 16 intersection to be stepped up

Project not expected to be completed for another year, PennDOT official says

November 09, 2012

GREENCASTLE, Pa. — State efforts to widen and improve the intersection of U.S. 11 and Pa. 16 in Greencastle will intensify next week, according to Pennsylvania Department of Transportation spokesman Michael Crochunis.

Crews from Valley Quarries, a division of contractor New Enterprise, will be removing an existing Sheetz sign and air compressor, Crochunis said in a phone interview Friday.

That corner of the intersection will be undergoing drainage work, Crochunis said.

Winter weather could affect how much work is completed this year, but the entire project is not expected to wrap up until November 2013, he said.

PennDOT awarded a $1.4 million contract to New Enterprise, according to Crochunis.

Workers already have been doing site preparation in the area.
