I-180 work zone impacts for May 19-24

I-180 work zone impacts for May 19-24

Weather permitting, the contractor working on Interstate 180 in Northumberland and Lycoming counties next week will begin implementing the first phase of long-term, temporary traffic patterns.

Concrete barrier will be in place to reduce eastbound traffic to one lane. The work zone speed limit is reduced to 55 MPH for long-term traffic control.

Westbound still will be restricted to one lane (using cones) during daylight hours only, until crossovers can be completed.

A subcontractor will continue placing barriers and painting lines in the temporary ramps and median areas. Another subcontractor will begin milling the westbound lane and removing guiderail once traffic is switched to the eastbound lane.

Repairs to the substructure of the bridge carrying the interstate over Hughes Road and Route 54 continue.

Motorists are strongly urged to pay attention to changing traffic patterns. Pennsylvania State Police will be on site to assist with traffic control during the placement of the barrier. Please be aware of construction equipment and delivery trucks within the work zone.

Pending weather and workload, the crossovers will become live and westbound traffic will be directed into one lane of the eastbound side of the highway, with barrier separating two-way traffic, one lane for each direction, starting Tuesday, May 20.

Exit 10 (Muncy/Main Street) will be closed and a detour will be in effect.

The work zone extends from just east of Exit 5 (Turbotville) to just west of Exit 10.
