I-180 Work-Zone Traffic Impacts for Aug. 4-8

I-180 Work-Zone Traffic Impacts for Aug. 4-8

A $16.1 million resurfacing project along a 5-mile stretch of Interstate 180 between Exit 10 (Muncy-Main Street) in Lycoming County and Exit 5 (Turbotville) in Northumberland County will continue next week.

Weather permitting, the contractor working on the project will implement the second phase of long-term, temporary traffic patterns.

I-180 westbound currently is restricted to one-lane. The work-zone speed limit is reduced to 55 MPH on both sides of the highway.

Next week, eastbound traffic will still be restricted to one lane during daylight hours only while crossovers are implemented.

A subcontractor will continue placing barrier and line painting in the temporary ramps and median areas. Another subcontractor will begin milling in eastbound lane once traffic is switched to westbound lane, removing guiderail in eastbound lane. The structure subcontractor will continue repairs to the substructure of the bridge carrying the interstate over Hughes Road and Route 54.

Weather permitting, the crossovers will become live and eastbound traffic will be directed into one lane on the westbound side of the highway, with barrier separating the two-way traffic, one lane for each direction, starting Wednesday, Aug. 6.

The Muncy-Main Street on ramp will be closed and a signed detour will be in effect.

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