A section of Cool Creek Road in Lower Windsor Township will be closed until December, starting Tuesday, for a realignment project.
The $2.9 million contract, awarded to Kinsley Construction Inc., includes the design and realignment of the road. It also includes excavation and removal of the existing structures, installation of two pre-cast concrete box culverts, roadway reconstruction, drainage improvements and installation of guiderails, signs and new traffic lines, according to the state Department of Transportation.
The road is expected to be reopened in December, but a work crew will have to return in spring or early summer for paving.
The existing structures supporting the concrete slabs that carry Cool Creek Road over an unnamed tributary of the Canadochly Creek were built in 1933 and are considered functionally obsolete, PennDOT said.
Cool Creek Road between Adams and Nursery roads will be closed the project is being completed.
Kinsley officials will assist local residents with access to their properties during roadway reconstruction, PennDOT said.
A detour that follows Mount Pisgah Road, Main Street in Yorkana, Route 124, Maple Street and Main Street in East Prospect and Nursery Road will be in place.
