Restricted traffic for night roadwork on East Market Street
A section of East Market Street will see restricted nighttime traffic beginning Monday.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced its contractor will resume work on a repair-and-resurfacing project Monday, April 2, according to a news release.
Work will begin on a roughly 2⅓-mile section of East Market Street where it intersects with Harrison Street at the York City-Spring Garden Township line.
Construction will continue under I-83, stopping east of Route 24 in Springettsbury Township.
The more than $2 million contract awarded to Bedford County-based New Enterprise Stone and Lime Inc. covers curb cut work required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, extension of the eastbound left-turn lane at Memory Lane, drainage pipe cleaning, installation of 73 bicycle-safe inlet grates, roadway base repair, replacement of the top layer of asphalt with Superpave asphalt overlay, new signs and pavement markings.
The turn-lane extension has already been completed, and ADA work began in October.
Lanes will not be restricted between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., but travelers might see shifting traffic patterns, including restriction of traffic to a single lane in each direction in order to complete ADA curb and drainage work before milling and paving.
PennDOT asks drivers to plan ahead to avoid delays, as sections of East Market Street average between 19,000 and 22,400 vehicles daily.
The project is scheduled for completion in July.
