Pavement project begins Thursday

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has announced a pavement preservation project for a 3.8-mile section of Route 15 in Carroll Township near Dillsburg beginning Thursday.

Left turns will be prohibited from southbound Route 15 onto southbound Route 74 (North Baltimore Street) so the contractor can do inlet work in the left lane. This work is expected to be completed no later than Aug. 16.

Motorists can access Route 74 by continuing on to the traffic light at Harrisburg Street, turning left and taking Harrisburg Street to Route 74.

The project includes pavement preservation, patching, guide rail upgrades and drainage work.

Motorists can expect lane restrictions during the day and nighttime hours.
