Repairs to a section of Route 382 in Newberry and Fairview townships are set to begin Wednesday, according to a state Department of Transportation news release.

PennDOT has hired a contractor to repair and resurface the nearly 4.5-mile stretch from Old Trail Road in Newberry Township to just past Siddonsburg Road in Fairview Township, the release states.

Motorists might encounter shifting traffic patterns and lane restrictions through the work zone after 8 a.m. on weekdays, PennDOT advises.

Sections of the roadway will be closed during three weekends in mid-to-late October while pipe replacement work occurs. The closures will occur from 8 p.m. on Fridays to 6 a.m. on Mondays.

During closures, a detour will be in effect on Route 177 to Route 252, 252 to Route 114 and 114 to Route 382.

Route 382 averages 6,160 vehicles daily along the stretch, according to PennDOT.

Roadwork will be performed by Hempt Bros. Inc., of Camp Hill, which was awarded the more than $2.6 million contract for base replacement, drainage pipe and inlet replacements, guide rail replacement and new signs and pavement markings.

Work is scheduled to be complete in August 2017.
