(For US 322)  PennDOT - District 2 News: Milling/Paving to Start This Week on Route 322 Project near Philipsburg

Elsewhere on US 322 (Delaware County, specifically), the newly dualized section between Clayton Park on the Bethel/Concord Twp. line and US 1 in Concordville is a beaut.  When will dualization begin on 322 between Clayton Park and the existing dual just before PA 452 in Upper Chichester Twp.?

From the US 322 Website:  http://us322conchester.com/news/construction-update-winter-2020-21/

Quote
The next location along the U.S. 322 corridor to be addressed will be Section CSX, which will replace the bridge over the CSX railroad and Bethel Road, and reconstruct the adjacent Bethel Road Interchange. Construction on Section CSX is scheduled to begin late 2021.
Quote
Section 103, scheduled for construction beginning in 2023, will widen the highway and reconstruct the four-lane section from Chelsea Parkway/Bethel Avenue through the Route 452/Market Street Interchange.

Section 102, scheduled for construction in 2024, will widen and improve U.S. 322 between Garnet Mine Road and Chelsea Parkway/Bethel Avenue in Bethel Township, including its intersections and the Foulk Road Interchange.

In response to this post:  https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=15363.msg2764074#msg2764074

I also do not remember seeing any of the "Do 6" shields on that stretch or the I-81/I-476 concurrencies.  I have not clinched US 6 BUS (Carbondale) to see if they are on that route.

Makes sense. While I get it, I've never been fond of "New Jersey" as a control city... either pick a real city or just use NYC.

Interesting that they include the word City. Since the I-95/Turnpike connection, PennDOT and the PTC have consistently signed it as just "New York" on I-95 and the Turnpike.

I can see several good reasons for it:
1) The old control was likely New Jersey, so this distinguishes they mean a city, not another state.
2) NYC probably isn’t a sanctioned control for 276 by AASHTO, so there’s that need to be more specific.
3) If you want to go to upstate New York, you very possibly want to take 276 west to 476 north.

PennDOT is using NYC on 476 northbound approaching 276…

That signage you're referring to has 276 to 95 shields on them though. As you alluded to above, I don't think you can sign 276 for NYC without referencing 95.

Anyone know if there is a place where traffic signal improvement plans might be posted? My township just got a grant to update signals near me and I wanted to find out more details on what they’re doing. Not sure if this type of project is posted in ECMS.

I think the ones more focused on state roads are, but probably not if it is generally township roads having signal upgrades.

If it is a township project, then the plans would be accessible from the township because they need to be put out to bid.

These are state roads but the township got the grant, so not sure if the township runs the project or if PennDOT does.

If it helps, the project is on SR 252 in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County.  Nothing in ECMS or the township's bid portal yet.

It seems then that the plain "New York" was mainly used in the initial wave of sign changes as part of the 95/Turnpike connection, and more recent one-off changes as well as the AET signage changes use "New York City".

PennDOT - District 8 News: Emergency Repairs Complete, SB Route 74 over I-83 in York Township, York County is Open to Traffic

Bumping this quote-string to note I grabbed a pic of the temporary support truss added to the PA 74 overpass while passing thru York on I-83 last Thursday - reminds me of the reinforcements added to the old Champlain Bridge to keep it going until the replacement opened.

{image snipped}

Bumping this string yet again - the overpass, which still has the temporary support truss while awaiting permanent repairs this fall, was struck for a 2nd time yesterday afternoon. I-83 & PA 74 currently remain closed while the (additional) damage is assessed.
