  • PennDOT

    The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation intends to reopen Route 11/15 to traffic between Interstate 81 in East Pennsboro Township in Cumberland County and the Borough of Marysville in Perry County. This portion of Route 11/15 has been closed to all traffic since the night of May 1 for a rock slope safety improvement project. The closure was originally expected to continue until no later than July 30, but the contractor for the project – J.D. Eckman, Inc. of Atglen, Pennsylvania – is ahead of schedule and able to reopen the road today. The project is not finished, however, and motorists should expect to encounter daytime lane restrictions between 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM and possibly nighttime lane restrictions between 6 PM and 6 AM as the contractor continues to place steel fencing on rock walls that have been built along the road, painting traffic lines, installing pavement markings, and other miscellaneous construction items. The actual contract completion date is in November, but the contractor will wrap up the project long before then – probably by the end of July.
