Travelers are advised that a roadwork project will take place next week on Interstate 80 in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania
On Monday, May 8, 2023, through Wednesday, May 10, 2023, a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) maintenance crew will be performing side dozing along Interstate 80 both eastbound and westbound between mile marker 211 and mile marker 213, which is located east of the Route 15 interchange.
Interstate 80 traffic can expect alternating lane restrictions where work is being completed. Work will be performed during daylight hours, weather permitting.
Side dozing is the removal of excess material build that builds up under the guide rail. Removing the material improves drainage and allows water to flow freely away from the roadway.
Motorists should be alert, slow down, watch for lane changes, expect delays in travel, and drive with caution through the work zone.
