ADAMS TWP — Traffic controls and flaggers will be in place as work continues on the Route 228 expansion project in the township.
Crews will be working to build up the asphalt paving at that intersection until the grade is met on either side of Route 228 according to information from PennDOT. Paving tie-ins will also be put in place at the east and west ends of the project, so that traffic can be switched from the current lanes of travel to the new widening area in both directions.
The traffic flow will also shift onto the new widening on Pittsburgh Street and Warrendale Road. According to PennDOT, this will allow the contractor to complete the remaining half of box culvert work on Route 228 as well as draining, paving, sidewalk and signal work.
No long term lane restrictions are expected between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays, between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sundays.
The nearly $8 million project began last spring and aims to widen the road as well as add turning lanes, guardrails, signal improvements, drainage upgrades and the new box culvert.
The work will be done by Gulisek Construction and is expected to be completed by May 2020. The project is expected to cost $7,992,930.
