Lane Restrictions Scheduled on Camp Hill Road and Pennsylvania Avenue for Road Reconstruction


KING OF PRUSSIA
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) today announced that lane restrictions are scheduled next week (May 31-June 4) on Camp Hill Road and Pennsylvania Avenue in Springfield Township, Montgomery County, for road reconstruction.

The work schedule is:

• Camp Hill Road will be restricted between Walnut Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue on Tuesday through Saturday (May 31-June 4) from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for road reconstruction; and

• Pennsylvania Avenue will be restricted between the Route 309 overpass and Oreland Mill Road on Tuesday through Saturday (May 31-June 4) from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for road reconstruction.

The work is part of PennDOT’s $4.5 million project to realign the intersection of Camp Hill Road and Pennsylvania Avenue in Springfield and Upper Dublin townships, Montgomery County.
Crews are realigning Camp Hill Road to eliminate a dog-leg configuration at the intersection and improve traffic flow and safety. Crews will also install left and right turn lanes; upgrade traffic signals at the intersection; improve drainage and roadway signing; and install new guide rail and pavement markings.

Camp Hill Road is closed and detoured between Pennsylvania Avenue and Dreshertown Road for construction. The 24-hour detour began March 24 and will remain in place until October.

Allen A. Myers, LP of Worcester, Pa., is the general contractor on the $4,570,393 contract that is financed with 20 percent state and 80 percent federal funds. Construction is expected to finish in May 2013.
