The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation advises motorists that I-80 construction continues next week eastbound and westbound in Hemlock, Mount Pleasant, Scott and South Centre Townships, Columbia County.
On Sunday, February 19, the contractor will be installing sign foundations and signs on Interstate 80 eastbound between mile marker 241 (Route 11 / Lime Ridge exit) and mile marker 235 (Route 487 / Lightstreet / Bloomsburg exit). Work will be completed between the hours of 7:00 PM and 6:00 AM each night beginning Sunday, February 19 and ending at 6:00 AM on Friday, February 24. Motorists can expect the right (driving) lane to be restricted.
Motorists should be alert, slow down, watch for lane changes, and drive with caution.
This $9.1 million I-80 construction project is for pavement preservation and bridge preservation, which spans between mile marker 235 (Lightstreet / Bloomsburg exit) to mile marker 241 (Lime Ridge exit). Work includes bituminous and concrete base preservation, bridge approach replacement, epoxy overlay, and bituminous milling and resurfacing. The project also includes bridge preservation on Route 1001 (Shaffer Road), Route 1003 (Lows Road), and bridge preservation work to the structures on Interstate 80 eastbound and westbound: the structures at mile marker 239, and the structures at mile marker 240 over Route 11 and the North Shore Railroad.
Work is expected to be completed on this project in the Spring of 2023.
