PennDOT - District 5 News: PennDOT Previews 2024 Construction in the Allentown-Based PennDOT Region

QuoteToday, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) District 5 highlighted projects anticipated to begin this year in Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Monroe, Northampton, and Schuylkill counties. Governor Josh Shapiro's commitment to delivering safe highways and bridges across the Commonwealth remains a top priority. These investments support the Shapiro Administration's vision of a safe and reliable transportation network that connects Pennsylvanians to greater opportunity.

The Department anticipates investing more than $1.3 billion this year in the region's infrastructure. There are 78 projects anticipated to start during the 2024 construction season with an estimated value of over $375 million, and 105 projects with a contract value of over $1 billion are currently active.

Governor Shapiro's 2023-24 budget  secured $125 million to fully leverage federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) investments and improve Pennsylvania's roads and bridges. The investment is made possible by decoupling Pennsylvania State Police funding from the Motor License Fund and is the first year of the Governor's four-year proposal to invest an additional $1.25 billion in the state's infrastructure. Statewide in 2023, 684 bridges went out for bid to be repaired, replaced, or preserved and 7,011 roadway miles were improved by department or partner crews.

Overall highlights in the 2024 construction season for District 5 include:
•   1,155 miles of roadway improvements.
•   157 bridges will be addressed.
•   299 miles of seal coating.
•   632 miles of crack sealing.

The event was held near one of the projects that recently began, the Route 61 Frackville to St. Clair Improvement Project in Schuylkill County. The over $115 million project is partially funded by a $21 million federal Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) grant.

The Route 61 project includes full depth pavement reconstruction, safety improvements including realignment of several substandard curves, heavy excavation, intersection upgrades at Darkwater Road, wider shoulders, reconstruction and/or rehabilitation of eight culverts and four retaining walls, a bridge, slope stabilization, message boards, sign structures, ADA curb ramps and miscellaneous construction.

The project also includes upgrading the Route 61 intersection with Darkwater Road in New Castle Township. This intersection will be widened, turning lanes will be added, and a traffic signal will be added.
 
"The Route 61 Improvement Project is a top priority for PennDOT and the people of Schuylkill County," District Executive Chris Kufro said. "PennDOT will continue to manage state and federal transportation dollars to improve safety and mobility in east central Pennsylvania."

Notable projects that will continue this year include:

(For PA 441)  PennDOT - District 8 News: PennDOT Announces Online Plans Display for Route 441 Eisenhower Boulevard Pedestrian Safety Improvement Project in Swatara Township, Dauphin County

QuoteHarrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Engineering District 8-0 invites the public to an online plan display regarding pedestrian safety upgrades to Route 441 (Eisenhower Blvd) in Swatara Township, Dauphin County.

The purpose of the project is to provide safer pedestrian access along the Route 441 (Eisenhower Blvd) corridor between Highland Street and Lindle Road. The proposed work will install new sidewalks on both sides of Route 441 along with ADA curb ramps, including ADA curb ramps at driveways, pedestrian signals, and crosswalks at the intersections. The project will also mill and pave the existing pavement and provide new pavement markings. The new pavement markings will allow for bike lanes in both directions. Street lighting will also be installed along both sides of the road.

Construction is estimated to take place in the 2025 construction season. Traffic will be maintained throughout the duration of the project via staged short-term construction. Driveway access will be maintained at all times during construction to businesses along this section of Route 441. The acquisition of temporary construction easements or required right of way will not be required for this project as the existing legal right of way is wide enough to accommodate all necessary upgrades.

Information including an interactive comment form, can be found by visiting the PennDOT District 8 website clicking on Public Meetings listed under the Resources heading, and choosing the Dauphin County box then the tile marked Eisenhower Boulevard Pedestrian Safety Improvement Project.

The plans display will be held online only. A digital version of the information will be available to view online until June 8, 2024.

The purpose of the plans display is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding any questions or concerns with the project.

The project documents can be made available in alternative languages or formats if requested.
