A project to upgrade traffic signals and controllers along Route 30 in York City and several boroughs and townships in York County begins Wednesday. 

Initial work on the project will be done during daylight hours off the roadway, with minimal traffic impacts, according to the state Department of Transportation. 

PennDOT will be working on traffic signals and controllers on Route 30 and other areas in York County starting on Wednesday.

Signal work will be done at night, with short-term lane closures as needed. 

The project covers a 4-mile section of Route 30 from the intersection of Kenneth Road to the intersection of North Hills Road, where traffic signals will be upgraded and coordinated. 

Besides York City, the work will take place in North York, Manchester Township, West Manchester Township, Springettsbury Township and Spring Garden Township, according to PennDOT.
