PennDOT: Night work begins Sunday on Route 24

  • Work shifts from daylight hours to night as PennDOT continues repaving on Cape Horn Road.

Work began Sunday night on a four-mile-plus stretch of road in eastern York County.

Motorists along Cape Horn Road, also known as Route 24, should expect lane restrictions between East Prospect Street in Red Lion and Windsor Road in Windsor Township between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., according to a news release.

The $3 million project will consist of milling and paving, a process that first strips away and then replaces the black asphalt surface of the road. The state Department of Transportation cautions drivers to remain alert, as flaggers will be positioned in the roadway to assist with traffic flow. Drivers are reminded to obey work zone signs and slow down for their safety and for the safety of the road crews.

Daytime work began on the project back in April, and lane restrictions during daylight hours might continue throughout the life of the project, which is expected to reach completion in mid-October, the news release said.

J.D. Eckman Inc., of Atglen, Pennsylvania, was awarded the contract for the project and is performing the highway improvements.

A portion of Cape Horn Road, also known as Route 24, is being repaved. Motorists are advised to use caution as the work shifts tonight from daytime to nighttime hours.
