Median cable guide rail project on I-80 in Northumberland, Union, and Columbia Counties continues

A PennDOT contractor will continue work this week on a regional median cable guide rail project on Interstate 80 in Northumberland, Union, and Columbia counties.

Beginning Monday, Sept. 9, Pennline will install high-tension median cable guide rail on I-80 in both directions between the Milton interchange and the Limestoneville exit.

During this project, left lane closures may occur. Delays should be expected.

This work, which is part of $ 1.6 million safety improvement project at multiple locations in north central Pennsylvania, is expected to be completed in September.

Restoration project on I-80 moves to Columbia County this week

A 10.9-mile highway restoration project on Interstate 80 moves into Columbia County next week.

Roadway rehabilitation began Sunday evening on Interstate 80 westbound between the Lightstreet and Buckhorn exits. During the week-long project, traffic will be reduced to a single lane. Traffic will be restored to two lanes by 9 am Friday, Sept. 13.

Delays are expected, especially during hours of peak traffic. 

This project includes concrete patching, spall repair, joint sealing, and diamond grinding on I-80 westbound and eastbound.
