MONTOURSVILLE -- PennDOT road work will continue this week on several projects in Lycoming and Tioga counties. Work also will begin on the Route 220 bridge near Antlers Lane in Woodward Township, Lycoming County. In Snyder County, there will be an emergency pipe replacement project in Chapman Township. The following is a summary of this week's projects:
An 8.6-mile resurfacing project on Interstate 180 from Cemetery Road in Fairfield Township to the Muncy Creek bridge in Muncy Creek Township continues this week.
There will be shoulder closures on the I-180 westbound off- and on-ramps at the Route 405 Interchange (Muncy/Hughesville). The shoulder closures will be implemented from approximately 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday so a subcontractor can construct a new highway lighting system at the interchange.
There also will be intermittent lane closures in both directions within the project limits for surveying activities. This project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2019.
On Monday, May 6, PennDOT will begin repairs on the Route 220 northbound and southbound bridges spanning railroad tracks just south of Williamsport near Antlers Lane in Woodward Township.
There will be alternating lane restrictions in place in each direction 24/7 for approximately two weeks. There may be delays and traffic queues, especially in the northbound direction during peak hours in the morning, and in the southbound direction during peak hours in the afternoon.
A PennDOT contractor will continue work next week on a median cable guide rail project on Route 15 in Tioga County.
The contractor, Morgan Rail Inc., will install median cable guide rail on Route 15 northbound and southbound from Mansfield to the New York state line. This moving operation will require left lane or shoulder closures at work locations.
Minor delays are expected. Motorists should be alert and drive with caution through the work zone.
This work, which is part of $ 1.6 million project at multiple locations in north central Pennsylvania, is expected to be completed in September.
A PennDOT maintenance crew in Snyder County will begin an emergency pipe replacement project this week on Route 2006 (Steffen Valley Road) in Chapman Township. The pipes allow Steffen Valley Road to cross an unnamed tributary to North Branch Mahantango Creek between Martin Brothers Road and Chapman Hollow Road.
A detour lasting approximately five days will be implemented the morning of Monday, May 6. The detour route will use T-807 and Route 2001 (Chapman Hollow Road) and Route 2004 (Hoffer Road).
Motorists are reminded to drive with caution through work zones.
