Preparations to repair and resurface a section of South Queen Street in York Township will affect traffic starting this week, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

The repairs are to go from the intersection of Tyler Run Road, over and including the Interstate 83 ramps at South Queen Street exit, to just west of Locust Hill Road, according to PennDOT.

Drivers may initially run into shifting traffic patterns or single-lane restrictions during the prep work, which is scheduled from 8:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m. That schedule will eventually change to a night-time milling and paving operation, running from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m., according to PennDOT.

The $1.5 million project was awarded to Highway Materials Inc. of Montgomery County and includes drainage work, roadway base repair, curb cuts, bituminous paving and new signs and pavement markings, PennDOT said.

Work is expected to be finished by mid-November.
