CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.—Drainage and base repair work is to begin Monday on a project to repair a 5.57-mile section of U.S. 11 north of Chambersburg, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation announced.
The work zone will run from the intersection of U.S. 11 (known locally as Molly Pitcher Highway) and Dear End Lane in Southampton Township to the intersection of South Penn Hall Drive in Chambersburg, according to a news release.
The $4,717,125 contract was awarded on July 12 to Highway Materials of Blue Bell, Pa., and includes repairs to this section of U.S. 11, as well as a 5.18-mile section of Pa. 997 between U.S. 11 in Greene Township and Pa. 533 in Letterkenny Township.
PennDOT reminds motorists traveling on U.S. 11 that they might encounter shifting traffic patterns and single-lane traffic restrictions with flaggers directing traffic through the work zone weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. as crews install drainage pipes and inlets and repair the roadway base.
PennDOT anticipates repair work on this section of U.S. 11 to finish this fall. Crews will take a break over the winter months and return in the spring to do the repairs on Pa. 997, according to the news release.
