This section averages more than 66,700 vehicles per day, so motorists should make alternative plans to avoid delays, PennDOT said in a news release.

The repair contract, awarded to J.D. Eckman Inc. of Atglen, Chester County, for about $13.6 million, includes resurfacing, roadway base repair, concrete and bridge deck patching, installation of a new guardrail, signs and pavement markings.

It's scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
