The state Department of Transportation has announced that the repair and resurfacing project on Route 234 between East Berlin Borough and York will resume Monday.
The project began in November, but then shut down in mid-December for the winter season. This project covers a 6.8-mile portion of Route 234 from the intersection with Sunset Road in Paradise Township through Jackson and West Manchester townships to the intersection with Route 462 (West Market Street).
PennDOT advises those who travel on this portion of Route 234 that they may encounter single-lane traffic restrictions with flaggers assisting them through the work zone on weekdays after 8:30 a.m. Sections of Route 234 average more than 6,500 vehicles traveled daily.
PennDOT has contracted with Pennsy Supply, Inc. of Annville to conduct the highway improvement project at a cost of $3,2 million. The work includes drainage updates, base repair, curb cut work required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, milling and resurfacing, guiderail installation, sign replacement and new pavement markings.
Sometime this spring, construction crews will close a section of Route 234 for a weekend to replace a 54-inch drainage cross-pipe. During the closure, a detour which follows Big Mount Road,Route 30 and Biesecker Road will be in place. PennDOT will issue an announcement prior to that closure. The entire project is scheduled for completion by the end of September.
